2nd Grade Summer Reading List

Greater Atlanta Christian School expects all students to read during the summer.  Parents are encouraged to participate in this process by reading aloud. This suggested list for summer reading and the links provided are not exclusive but attempts to provide choices for various reading abilities and interests. Children need guidance in selecting the right books. Students entering the 2nd grade should read ten (10) books during the summer.  Along with these suggestions, the public library and many local bookstores are also wonderful sources of information and they will be eager to help you find books that match your child’s interests.
