2020 LMSS Book List

Ali Bearnson

We're so excited to introduce the second annual Little Mama Shirt Shop Summer Reading Challenge. Last year, thousands of mamas and little ones all around the world participated and we're expecting even more this year.

This program is free to join and all ages are welcome. Reading with our children through the summer is a fun way to cultivate connection and help keep them sharp for school in the fall. In fact, research shows that children who are read to at least three times a week by a family member are more than twice as likely to score in the top 25% in their reading scores, compared to children who are read to less than three times a week.

This book list was compiled by the LMSS team, based on books we loved as children and books we love to read with our children. We hope something on this list will spark interest and a love of a reading with your child!
