Summer Reading Information

  • A common question we receive in the media center is "what books are my children required to read over the summer?"
    DeSoto Trail does not publish a list of required summer reading each year. Instead, students are encouraged to read books that interest them and keep a summer reading log. Students who read six or more books during the summer are recognized at a celebration at the beginning of the new school year.
    If you're not sure what to read, one of our favorite book lists is the Sunshine State Young Readers Award-winning books. These books are usually available from our local public library.
