Students with summer birthdays sometimes feel like they are missing out. When they discover beloved authors who share their birthday month, they will not only feel better, but inevitably experience book adventures that will influence them forever. We hope you’ll share before school lets out for the summer or drop your July birthday students a note with recommendations you think they’ll enjoy.

Check them out from your local or school library or click the Amazon links. (C-Chapter Book, P= Picture Book)
