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’ve finally made it to June, which means it’s time for summer vacation! After a long year of hard work are ready for a few months of relaxation, freedom, and new adventures!
While students might be putting their textbooks away, the sunny weather won’t stop them from enjoying a good summer read. As students look for ways to spend their free time, they’ve been finding inspiration for adventures in their favorite books. Many of our readers are turning to stories of beloved fictional characters, while others are preparing for upcoming travels by reading about world landmarks and activities.
