Reading is Rockin' with Patch Partnership

We recently teamed up with a best-selling author to bring you reading recommendations for kids of all ages.

Between the heat and the afternoon thunderstorms, summer is a perfect time for the kids to snuggle up with a good book.

So did you know that last month, Patch, AOL’s leading platform of local news, information and engagement sites, and READKIDDOREAD.com, the website founded by No. 1 best-selling author James Patterson, announced a partnership designed to encourage kids’ passion for reading?

You can find four age-specific reading lists chosen by Patterson as great summer reads here:

Kids and parents are encouraged to share their own recommendations and their progress with the list on Patch by commenting on the stories.

Would your child like to write a review of a book he or she has read this summer? Email the text of your child's review, along with their snapshot and his/her age and school to local editor Jared Leone.

You can also find more book recommendations and other fun family programs in the .
