Disney Has Come up With a Summer Reading List For Kids of All Ages
Because you CAN’T spend all Summer on the computer, Disney is encouraging families to share the magic of reading with their First Official Summer Reading List. Best of all, as part of Disney’s commitment to inspiring the next generation of storytellers, Disney publishing is donating one million books to Boys & Girls Clubs of America including Clubs in Central Florida.
The Reading List has 15 amazing recommendations with selections for kids from 0-16. You’ll find incredible titles from New York Times bestselling author Kwame Mbalia, Pixar animator Mike Wu, Serena Valentino and more! Nature lovers also won’t want to miss the National Geographic titles. And it would be a Summer Reading List without some classic Disney stories.
Best of all, most of the books on the list are available in eBook, audio book and print formats, and more book titles are available on shopDisney.com. Imagination starts today!
