Summer Read Aloud Book Group

  Here in Oregon we are less than 2 weeks away from Summer Vacation!  I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited for slow sunny days, and lots of extra time for being outside, fun outings, and lots of summer reading.  I'm starting a Summer Read Aloud Book Group with some friends in our area.  We are planning to read the books below with our kiddos and get together each month to discuss the books and do a couple activities! 
I thought I would share the list of books below if anyone else wanted to follow along!  Enjoy!
