We wanted to know which of these books our readers couldn’t put down. So we took a look at some of their BookSmart favorites from the summer and thought we’d share them with you in case you’re looking for some inspiration.
These stories were picked by tens of thousands of readers. They range from chapter books about finding one’s calling to picture books on essential skills like counting and managing emotions, which means there’s bound to be something for everyone.
We hope that you and the children in your life enjoy these books too. And, if you’ve already read them, who knows, maybe you’ll discover something new on your second read!
