Summer Reading Lists
Torrington Christian Academy’s summer reading lists are designed to enrich and broaden the reading of students and to reinforce the curriculum of the English Department.
Our goal is to invite the focus of Philippians 4:8: “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” That being said, we are thankful for our trusted partnership with parents and encourage parents to help choose which “suggested” books would be best appropriate for their home/convictions (especially with some of the more “mature” content in Grade 9-12). TCA does not endorse any content/concepts in these or any other books which are contrary to the Bible.
If your local library is not yet open due to COVID-19, here are a couple suggestions:
1. Search online for a close-by library that does “curb-side” pick-up of books, such as Torrington Public Library is offering.
2. Most libraries offer digital materials, including children’s books that can be brought up on tablets, smartphones, or computers.
For additional book suggestions for ages 0-12, consider purchasing or checking out from the library: “Honey for a Child’s Heart”.
