One of the easiest ways to engage kids in reading is to share activities and stories on subjects they are already interested in.  When you’re asked to find a book about subject X, a book list can be a helpful tool. They can make it easy to find some tried-and-true books on a given subject. Collectively, the links below offer you ideas for just about every subject imaginable.

Caveat: We have books about summer, but we don’t have summer book lists.
