Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge

Preschool and Elementary-aged children are invited to participate in Unity’s Summer Reading Challenge to add some faith-based books to your summer reading list. Ms. Kathryn has created a list to help you choose some great books to read this summer. Check out the list below for your age group here (those with an asterisk are available from the York County Library system). Consider adding one or two to your own library and maybe share with a friend.
