Fulmore Summer Reading 2010 pt. 2

A Listmania! list by T. Meunier (Austin, TX United States)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Here is part 2 of the list! It is too long to print....so ask your child to peruse on-line. The column on the left indicates whether or not we have the book in our library. Our goal is to get at least one copy of each book on the list, but that will take awhile and some funding to accomplish. In the meantime, the public libraries will most likely have a copy of these titles. HAPPY READING!!!

Note: Parents please examine your child's choices as there are some books with sensitive themes.

Some students may find that keeping a composition book with notes will help them remember what they read. Especially students prone to starting and then leaving their reading for awhile before continuing.

Remember: 2 fiction books and 2 non-fiction books each summer. It's a marathon read-a-thon for our Falcons. BUT WE ARE WORDSMITHS SO WE LOVE IT!
