Now in its ninth year, the YOBOD summer reading program, which runs June through August, offers children ages 9-12 a shared reading experience along with fun and educational programming to help combat summer learning loss with events and activities tied to the book’s themes. 

This year's selection is a repeat of a past favorite, “Upside-Down Magic” published by Scholastic, Inc., from hit authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins. The story chronicles the misadventures of nine-year-old Nory and her oddball friends, who prove that upside-down magic definitely beats right side up.

Books are available at your favorite book store or library, and additional online activities are available below.

AUTHOR TALK: Join the authors for a free, virtual discussion Thursday, July 30, 2020, noon-1:30 p.m.
