2018 Summer Reading Program: Grades 5-6

Be a part of our Summer Reading Program!

To complete the challenge, you get to choose at least three of these recommended books and up to three books of your own choosing--for a total of 6 great books--to read over the summer.

Remember to track your reading on your summer reading bookmark and turn it back in to us before school starts. Just bring back your filled out bookmark, making sure to note your name, age, and school before turning it in, by September 5th. Then you will get to collect your reward and proudly post your name on our wall of Summer Reading Stars.

Bookmarks are available in-store or download one here.

If you liked the book you read, let us know by writing a short review about why you liked it. For each review, your name will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift card to Bookshop Santa Cruz! Reviews will be posted in the Bookshop for everyone to read.

The school with the most submitted completed Summer Reading Program bookmarks will win a Bookshop Santa Cruz gift card to purchase new books for their library.
