PBS is synonymous with combining education and entertainment, and PBS LearningMedia’s new Summer of Reading collection combines videos, activities and interactive games to help students’ minds stay sharp while they are off from school. With this in mind, we are happy to feature the top summer reading book picks of the PBS LearningMedia’s staff. Please note, although PBS has recommended the entire Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series, we have selected a single title from each series to help showcase the kinds of stories that make up these books.
