Kindergarten-2nd Grade

“All Students can learn. However, before learning can even begin, a child must feel loved and safe. What better way to show them they are loved than to first show them that Jesus loves them most. After that, it is as easy as 1-2-3: 1) spark all their senses, 2) create a love of reading, and 3) leave students wanting more.”
Kari Lange, K-2 Teacher

Dear Parents and Students,
As we approach the summer break, I am delighted to share with you a curated list of recommended reads for our HMS Richards Adventist School community. Please find
attached the list of books that I believe will inspire, entertain, and expand young minds.
Before suggesting any book to your child, I encourage you to review the content yourself to ensure it aligns with your values and preferences. Additionally, remember
that this list is just the beginning. This list is only the start. As you delve into the world of literature, you will stumble upon new authors and titles that capture your child’s
Reading is not just an activity; it’s a journey that allows us to travel, learn, explore, and imagine. I hope this summer provides ample opportunities for your family to embark on
exciting literary adventures.
Wishing you all a wonderful summer!
Mrs. Jordan
