15 Amazing Books To Read With Your Child This Summer

Summer is a great time of year to relax and grab a book with your children!  Whether it be on the beach, by the pool, at the park, or relaxing in your yard, I hope this list of summer books for children will help you to enjoy those lazy summer days!

My kids have enjoyed each of these books!  I often throw them in my beach bag.  I always enjoy reading books aloud to my boys, but I also love listening to them pretend to read them to each other now!
