Compiled from the reading lists of 60 exemplary schools, this "summertime" reading list provides titles of tried-and-true works published in or before 1960 which appeared on at least five of the school reading lists. Selections are divided according to grade level. The list offers over 100 book or series of titles recommended for kindergarten through grade 6, including Brunhoff's "The Story of Babar," Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables," and Williams'"The Velveteen Rabbit." Starred titles indicate books recommended for kindergarten through third grade, either for reading by children or for reading to them. The approximately 100 selections for grades 7 and 8 include Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451," Hersey's "Hiroshima," and Wharton's "Ethan Frome." Included in the 186 titles for grades 9 through 12 are Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," Machiavelli's "The Prince," and Wright's "Native Son." (MM)
