Summer Reading Fundraising Ideas

CBW Recommendations with Book Talk – We are happy to partner with you to prepare a list of new, popular, well-written books (approximately 10 per grade) to create a Summer Reading Recommended Titles list. In addition, children’s book expert Heather Hebert will come to your school to present books and get your students fired up about summer reading!
