James Patterson's 2012 Summer Reading Guides

Award-winning author James Patterson and Patch are teaming up to promote summer reading.

Summer is a great time to grab a good book. 

Sitting on the beach, beside the pool or just lounging around, the leisurely-pace of summer is great to read. It's an even better time for kids in school to get in the habit of reading. 

Patch asked James Patterson, the award-winning author who had 19 consecutive No. 1 New York Times bestselling novels, to partner with us and develop our 2012 Summer Reading Guides.

We've got four lists of books (divided by age group) with a little something for everyone: fantasy, adventure, even a little love!  If we missed your favorite book, tell us in the comments!

Find reviews of these books and more in the Advanced Reads section of Patterson's website ReadKiddoRead.com.

Here are the books your little ones should be reading if they are:

Once you've seen the lists, we want to know: What are you reading this summer? What did you think of this list? Are there other books that should make it to the list? Share your reading experiences with us and post a comment below!
