Disney Publishing Summer Reading List

Disney Publishing announced today that they are starting a new initiative to encourage kids and their families to spark or rekindle their love of reading. The company will be donating one million books to Boys & Girls Clubs of America as well as creating its first-ever Summer Reading List on shopDisney.

Pick up a book (or a few) this summer, as Disney is encouraging kids and families to come together and share their love of reading, with its first-ever Summer Reading List. To help ensure that more readers have access to books this summer and beyond, and as part of Disney’s commitment to inspiring the next generation of storytellers, Disney Publishing is donating one million books to Boys & Girls Clubs of America across the country, including Clubs in Central Fla.

Comprised of 15 recommendations for ages 0-16, the list features new books from fan-favorite authors including New York Times bestselling author Kwame Mbalia, Pixar animator Mike Wu, Serena Valentino and more, alongside National Geographic titles and classic Disney stories to keep everyone in the family engaged.
