The Ultimate Summer Reading Book List for Middle Schoolers

Apr 14, 2021

Summer is the perfect opportunity for your middle schooler to dive into page-turners that pique their unique interests. 

One of the best ways to keep kids learning this summer is to join the Scholastic Summer Reading program — this program is designed to develop lifelong readers by encouraging kids to read for fun during the summer.

Here's how to get started: Visit the summer zone in Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination offering stories, characters, and games, in a safe community for readers. The program runs from April 26 through September 3. 

Through Home Base, your child can help unlock book donations for kids with limited or no access to books by starting and keeping “reading streaks” during the summer. As part of the Scholastic Summer Reading program, your child can also enage with best-selling authors during special virtual events, connect with fellow readers, print reading achievement reports, and more!
