One of the best books I've read this year is actually a collection of four novellas by four of the best mystery/suspense writers currently publishing.
I have gathered together several books to round out your summer reading. Due to the many outstanding books I am recommending, I will shorten each review and expand the number of books. That way, you and your family will have a great number of books to choose from. All of these books are good for ages nine and above, but most are also terrific to read-out-loud to all family members.
It seems appropriate this week to look back at some of our pioneering ancestors. One group we don't hear a lot about were largely the next generation from those who settled the Salt Lake Valley. Brigham Young was anxious to establish a solid hold in the West by establishing communities outside of the Salt Lake Valley. One group sent to establish one of these communities was sent to the hot, desert area along the Muddy River. The desert climate and poor soil added to this group of pioneers' hardships.
Time to relax and read! Summertime emotes lazy, hot sunny days with no worries of school or school projects coming due. I have so many super books for kids ages nine to twelve, along with parents reading out loud to families, that I will include more outstanding books for summer reading in my next few reviews as well as this one.
