Summer reading fun is underway! Yay! There are so many awesome programs occurring in libraries to encourage kids to get reading and continue this fun throughout the summer. I have found that one topic so many kids of so many different ages LOVE is...pirates, of course! Pirates take on a certain fantastical element that appeals to so many kids of varying interests, plus they go along very nicely with the summer reading theme "Make a Splash @ Your Library!" So introduce some pirate books at all ages and to all different types of readers, and dive into a fun-filled summer!
