The Check It Out series highlights the most popular texts on LightSail, around a specific monthly theme or topic, based on our user data. Every month we’ll share which books LightSail readers can’t stop checking out. These insights help us curate book lists for our schools that we know will keep students engaged and growing.
We’re right in the middle of May, which means the end of the year is fast approaching! Even though summer vacation is right around the corner, exam season is in full swing, one of the busiest times of the year for schools across the country.
Here at LightSail, we think that laughter is the best medicine during times of stress, so it is no surprise that our readers are choosing titles that induce side-splitting laughter and feature some of our more famous literary tricksters! Reading can cause an array of emotions, and oftentimes the most enjoyable are the stories that make us laugh time and time again. Read on to find out more.
