Reading With You: Summer Edition 2021

Reading With You Summer Edition 2021

NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 are Reading With You this summer!

Our goal is to encourage our young students to read all summer. With the help of our partners, Reading Partners North Texas, Alice J. Puente Reading Initiative, and the Fort Worth Public Library, we strive to keep children engaged in reading year-round.

This is our third year to offer the summer edition of Reading With You. We have excellent recommendations for children’s books and activities from our partners at the Fort Worth Public Library and Reading Partners North Texas to help your children succeed. Any student in North Texas can check out a book for free from the Fort Worth Public Library. Students do not have to be residents of Fort Worth to do so.

Books Available for FREE at the Fort Worth Public Library 

Apply here for a Fort Worth Public Library Card or eCard. Books are also available via curbside pickup. 

Here is a collection of books from picture books to middle grade fiction. These are great books, both old and new, to share with the youth in your life.
