Elementary students are encouraged to read over the summer, both for enjoyment and to develop their reading skills. RISD elementary librarians have compiled a list of reading suggestions for students going into grades K-3 and students going into grades 4-6. The books on these lists are merely suggestions. Students are encouraged to find and read books that interest them.
