Dig Into Reading – great titles from our primary reading list.

Our summer reading programme is well underway. Young readers from all over the Winchester area are Digging Into Reading and Exploring Beneath the Surface,  recording all those precious reading minutes on their reading logs. It’s not too late to sign up – click here to register online.

To help get you started, we’ve compiled booklists for Primary, Elementary and Middle and High school students. The titles we’ve included all relate to the themes of Digging Into Reading and Exploring Beneath the Surface. Over the next few weeks here at YouthScope we are going to put the spotlight on many of the suggested titles, and today we’re going to start with the Primary List.

First up it’s Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? by Brianna Sayres.

Do their mommies tick them in while their daddies sing a goodnight song? Do they ask for one more story and then snuggle into a cozy gas station? Find out just what happens at bedtime for diggers, dump trucks, snow plows and tractors. A must read for the truck lover in your house!

Next is Margaret Mayo’s classic, Dig Dig Digging.

Another title for those vehicle loving younger readers. Mayo uses rhyme and lots of noise-filled words to explore the working days of eleven different vehicles – from construction trucks to rescue helicopters. Vroom! Vroom!

The wonders and delights of planting seeds and watching them grow is beautifully displayed in Lois Ehlert’s Planting a Rainbow.

Vibrant colors and simple text are used to help children understand how to plant bulbs and seeds, and nurture their growth. A great introduction to gardening.

All these titles and more are available at your local library, where you can also pick up copies of the reading lists.

Check back tomorrow for some highlights from the Elementary list.
Until then – happy reading 🙂
