Making a Summer Reading List

Posted on 5 May 2010 Wednesday

The Suns celebrate cinco de mayo

I’ve been asked to put together a summer reading list for Latino students. I have too many ideas so I’d like to welcome suggestions. I’m doing one list for 7-9 and another for 10-12 and I’d including fiction, non-fic biographies,  and a classic. I’m struggling with a graphic novel or comic. Due this Friday!!
