Summer book picks for kidsby Greta Cunningham, Minnesota Public Radio
Many children first discover the idea of reading for pleasure during the summer. There are no homework assignments, and the hot summer weather makes it an ideal time to grab a book and sit under a shady tree. The Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul has been helping parents and children find good summer reads for the past 20 years. MPR's Greta Cunningham met with co-owner Michele Cromer-Poire at her store to talk about some of her summer picks for kids.
