Summer Family Read with author Grace Lin

Let’s read books together! This summer we challenge you to read out loud with the children and loved ones in your life.

READING GRACE LIN

This summer, we’re reading everything by Grace Lin.

Readers of all ages will love Lin’s beautifully written and illustrated picture books, such as Dim Sum for Everyone! and A Big Mooncake for Little Star, a 2019 Caldecott Honor Book.

You can check out preschool book bags filled with delightful picture books by Grace Lin.

New readers will love to dive into the world of Ling & Ting, identical twins who make surprising discoveries about themselves and the world around them. You’ll find these tales on our Easy Reader shelves and in preschool book bags awaiting to delight young readers and their families.

Middle grade readers will enjoy the Pacy Lin novels, full of adventures with new friends, places to discover, and challenges that make you stronger. Grace Lin’s other middle grade novels include Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, a Newbery Honor Book, and When the Sea Turned to Silver, a National Book Award Finalist.

All of Grace Lin’s books are great for family read aloud time. Parents and older siblings can take turns reading, and beginning readers can jump in to read picture books and Easy Readers.

Middle grade readers, you may want to gather your family and friends and one of our Grace Lin Book-Discussion-to-Go bags to create your own summer book club!

Make reading the books of Grace Lin together part of your summer plans.
