Book Recommendations

The Readathon Team is pleased to share some wonderful book lists by local authors, booksellers, and librarians

Also check out our comprehensive list of read alouds, reading activities and more to enrich your child’s reading experience. We love listening to and seeing books read by Betty White, Oprah Winfrey, Melinda Long, Kevin Costner and more!

Concerned your child isn’t a reader? Or doesn’t like reading as much as he/she should? Several years ago we attended a book talk on How To Raise a Reader by Pamela Paul and Maria Russo. There were all sorts of tips to help make reading pleasurable at any age! Check out their New York Times article that eventually became a book for some great tips from the pros.
