You know we love a good color palette, so we’re into the (unintentional but v. appropriate!) beachy aesthetic of this year’s Summer Reading list. Click here for our full list of recommendations with annotations and an interview with Isabel Quintero and Zeke Peña, then download and print the PDF — featuring summery sunshine-and-shave-ice art from their new picture book My Papi Has a Motorcycle — to take with you to the library or bookstore. We hope you and yours have a wonderful long weekend full of great books! (But don’t check out for the weekend before adding the 2019 Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards announcement to your calendar — it’s coming up next Wednesday at SLJ‘s Day of Dialog + on Facebook Live!)
