Each year the library offers a Summer Reading Program. If your child hasn't signed up yet, be sure and visit an OC Public Libraries branch today! Some branches are even offering a reading program for adults. Don't let the kids have all the fun, earn all the prizes, or read all the books! Check with your local branch to see if they are offering a program for adults.
This year the reading program theme is "Paws to Read". That's right, it's animal themed! We all love the theme. Even if you don't officially sign up to participate in a reading program there are many fun animal themed books you might like to read this summer. May I recommend:
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Chet and Bernie series by Spencer Quinn
The Good Good Pig by Sy Montgomery
Maxie and Stretch series by Sue Henry
Through a Dog's Eyes by Jennifer Arnold
Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Watership Down by Richard Adams
White Fang by Jack London
This list is just a short list of fiction and non-fiction titles. There are lots more great animal themed reads. Please share some of your favorite animal themed books that make you want to "Paws to Read".
