Below are links to 2014 recommended summer reading lists for Caldwell-West Caldwell public school students in PreK to Grade 5.

Visit the Teen Summer Reading page for Grades 6-12. Check with a librarian for lists for local private elementary schools.

The books are shelved in Caldwell Public Library’s Summer Reading section in the Children’s Room.
Look for books with a SILVER STAR on the spine. If a book is out, we can try to order it from another library.
NOTE—ANY BOOK BY THESE AUTHORS IS RECOMMENDED.  Ask one of us for help finding books.
