L4LL Latino Children's Summer Reading Program

One Student at a Time.

The L4LL Latino Children’s Summer Reading Program goes live on June 1st until August 10. To develop and maintain critical literacy skills such as reading comprehension and vocabulary development, students read at least eight books during our 10-week program.

Because of the educational power of identification, Latinas for Latino Lit (L4LL) has pedagogically designed recommended reading lists of Hispanic children’s authors and illustrators, with book titles in English, Spanish, and bilingual, for three age groups:

  • Under 4 years old
  • 4 to 8 years old
  • 9 to 18 years old–“tween” and young adult readers

Because we believe parents are critical to our mission to raise literacy rates and improve lives, the L4LL Latino Children’s Summer Reading Program offers at no charge to parents, printable downloads in English and Spanish to self-guide their children’s summer reading:

  • L4LL summer reading lists
  • L4LL reading pledge
  • L4LL reading logs
  • L4LL end of program reading certificate of achievement

The L4LL DIY Summer Reading Camp is pedagogically designed to Common Core standards for children in 2nd through 6th grades. In addition to the primary summer reading program printables packet, the L4LL DIY Summer Reading Camp is in English and Spanish and includes original printables for parents or educators to download. The activities are centered around 10 themes to develop children’s reading and writing skills during our 10-week summer reading program.
