Summer Reading Lists 2020

Summer Reading Lists are now available here! They are downloadable and should provide parents and grandparents with plenty of reading options this summer for your children.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GSES Library will not be open for check out. Should the situation change, and more information is made available by the state of Texas, the city of Dallas, and the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese, we will update you. We did put together some eBook options for our families until libraries open, so click HERE for some ideas! Thank you!

Summer is a time for children to run, swim, play...and read. Not only is summer reading fun, but it can help keep reading skills sharp during vacation. This can make it easier for a child to adjust when he or she returns to school in August. Summer reading should be a relaxing experience. Some of the following tips might help you to encourage your child to read during the summer:

  • Read to your child
  • Be a reader yourself
  • Discuss what your child has read
  • Provide books and magazines which your child will enjoy
  • Encourage your child to join a summer reading club

The love of reading is contagious! So get out there, and grab a book!
