SUMMER READING Philosophy & Reading Hints
SUMMER READING PHILOSOPHY Mount Vernon Presbyterian School believes in the importance of encouraging students to continue their pursuit of knowledge through reading. In conjunction with the School’s goal of educating the whole student, the K-12 summer reading program will not only enhance academic skills such as critical thinking, literary analysis and vocabulary building, but it will also allow our students to become more aware of and sensitive to their role as Christians in the 21st century. Lastly, we hope to emphasize and instill a life-long appreciation and love of reading.
Summer Reading Hints Students can aid their long term retention of these works by taking notes based on the following questions and study areas. • Identify the main characters and their importance. • Identify the novel’s major theme or themes. How do the plot, setting, point of view, symbols, and irony express the novel’s theme or themes? • What types of conflicts are present? • What tone does the author express through the work’s events and characters? • What objects, persons, places, or events are given symbolic meaning? • If the work uses irony, what is its effect and why is it used?
If there are any questions, please refer to the summer reading link on the MVP website at www.mvpschool.com
Summer Reading Grades k-6 In grades K-6, the summer reading program will consist of two required books and two books of the student’s choice. Each student will read the required books for his/ her grade level (see the list below) and will choose two age appropriate books to read. Upon returning to school in the fall, an in-class assignment related to each of the two required books will be completed. Each student will also turn in the form at the end of this list to his/her homeroom teacher by September 3, 2010.
Rising Kindergarten: Crazy Day at the Critter Café by Barbara Odanaka All is quiet at the Critter Café... That is, until a group of hungry critters piles through the door! Raccoons, elephants, zebras, and rams are only some of the many animals demanding grub, and it is all that a cook and a waiter can do to keep up. But when Skateboard Cow swish, zoom, swishes her way through the crowd, more than a few feathers are guaranteed to be ruffled. It’s a crazy day at the Critter Café! Katie Loves the Kittens by John Himmelman This sweet book tells the story of a dog—that’s Katie—who is utterly infatuated with her owner’s new kittens. Aroooooo! howls Katie eagerly whenever she sees the tiny felines, but her vocalizing, leaping and avid tail-wagging only scare the living daylights out of them. Katie learns, after some setbacks, that desperately wanting to make friends is not necessarily a good starting point; sometimes, it’s better to let the other side take the lead. Katie is the very picture of openheartedness, confusion and contrition, and readers will root for her from the very first page.

Ralph interacts with a young boy named Keith, who gives Ralph a toy motorcycle. Keith teaches Ralph that in order to make the motorcycle go, he has only to make the same motorcycle sounds Keith makes while playing with it. Ralph is soon able to ride the motorcycle, which becomes his trademark until the end of the third book in the series. In the novel, Ralph helps to save Keith during an illness by delivering an aspirin to him. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert O’Brien There’s something very strange about the rats living under the rosebush at the Fitzgibbon farm. But Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with a sick child, is in dire straits and must turn to these exceptional creatures for assistance. Soon she finds herself flying on the back of a crow, slipping sleeping powder into a ferocious cat’s dinner dish, and helping 108 brilliant, laboratory-enhanced rats escape to a utopian civilization of their own design, no longer to live “on the edge of somebody else’s, like fleas on a dog’s back.”
Rising 5th Grade: Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson The story starts out simply enough: Jess Aarons wants to be the fastest boy in the fifth grade--he wants it so bad
he can taste it. He’s been practicing all summer, running in the fields around his farmhouse until he collapses in a sweat. Then a tomboy named Leslie Burke moves into the farmhouse next door and changes his life forever. Not only does Leslie not look or act like any girls Jess knows, but she also turns out to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. After getting over the shock and humiliation of being beaten by a girl, Jess begins to think Leslie might be okay. Despite their superficial differences, it’s clear that Jess and Leslie are soul mates. The two create a secret kingdom in the woods named Terabithia, where the only way to get into the castle is by swinging out over a gully on an enchanted rope. Here they reign as king and queen, fighting off imaginary giants and the walking dead, sharing stories and dreams, and plotting against the schoolmates who tease them. Jess and Leslie find solace in the sanctuary of Terabithia until a tragedy strikes and the two are separated forever. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell Based on real events, this is the story of Karana, a young Indian girl who lives on the Island of the Blue Dolphins, which is actually San Nicolas. She and her brother are left marooned on this island when all the villagers leave to live on another island. Time passes as Karana struggles to survive on her own. Rising 6th Grade: Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli “She was homeschooling gone amok.” “She was an alien.” “Her parents were circus acrobats.” These are only a few of the theories concocted to explain Stargirl Caraway, a new 10th grader at Arizona’s Mica Area High School who wears pioneer dresses and kimonos to school, strums a ukulele in the cafeteria, laughs when there are no jokes, and dances when there is no music. The whole school, not exactly a “hotbed of nonconformity,” is stunned by her, including our 16-year-old narrator Leo Borlock: “She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl.” In time, incredulity gives way to out-and-out adoration as the student body finds itself helpless to resist Stargirl’s wide-eyed charm, pure-spirited friendliness, and penchant for celebrating the achievements of others. In the ultimate high school symbol of acceptance, she is even recruited as a cheerleader. Popularity, of course, is a fragile and fleeting state, and bit by bit, Mica sours on their new idol.
Hoot by Carl Hiaasen Roy Eberhardt is the new kid--again. This time around it’s Trace Middle School in humid Coconut Grove, Florida. But it’s still the same old routine: table by himself at lunch, no real friends, and thick-headed bullies like Dana Matherson pushing him around. But if it wasn’t for Dana Matherson mashing his face against the school bus window that one day, he might never have seen the tow-headed running boy. And if he had never seen the running boy, he might never have met tall, tough, bully-beating Beatrice. And if he had never met Beatrice, he might never have discovered the burrowing owls living in the lot on the corner of East Oriole Avenue. And if he had never discovered the owls, he probably would have missed out on the adventure of a lifetime. Apparently, bullies do serve a greater purpose in the scope of the universe. Because if it wasn’t for Dana Matherson...

death. This third secret was released to Pope John XXIII in 1960 and made public by Pope John Paul II in 2000... or was it?
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller – Melody Cannon Years after writing a best-selling memoir, Donald Miller gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don’s life for film, the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.
Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer a Man Who Would Cure the World by Tracy Kidder – Ron Jones Thought-provoking and profoundly satisfying, this book will inspire feelings of humility, admiration, and disquietude; in some readers, it may sow the seeds of humanitarian activism. As a specialist in infectious diseases, Farmer’s goal is nothing less than redressing the “steep gradient of inequality” in medical service to the desperately poor. His work establishing a complex of public health facilities on the central plateau of Haiti forms the keystone to efforts that now encompass initiatives on three continents.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See – Jodi De’la Hurst Lily at 80 reflects on her life, beginning with her daughter days in 19th-century rural China. Foot-binding was practiced by all but the poorest families. Yet women had nu shu, their own secret language. At the instigation of a matchmaker, Lily and Snow Flower, become laotong, bound together for life. Their friendship and this tale, illustrate the most profound of human emotions: love and hate, self-absorption and devotion, pride and humility, to name just a few. Barefoot Runner: The Life of a Marathon Champion by Paul Rambali – Michael Farry Abebe Bikila, a soldier in the imperial guard of Ethiopia’s Haile Selassie, wasn’t just the first African athlete to win a gold medal in Olympic competition. He won the marathon in the 1960 games while running barefoot, then he defied odds to win again in Tokyo four years later. Between the two victories, however, he nearly faced execution after being used as a pawn by leaders of an unsuccessful coup against Selassie. The Third Secret by Steve Berry – Danielle Heintz Visions of the Virgin Mary, secret documents and politicking in the highest echelons of the Catholic Church—Berry combines combustive elements in this well-researched thriller. In 1917, the Virgin Mary revealed herself to three children in Fatima, Portugal, disclosing three secrets to the eldest, Lucia, who shared the first two secrets soon after their revelation but left the last to be disclosed upon her
Year of Secret Assignments by Jocylyn Moriarty – Krista Parker In the Year of Secret Assignments, a tenth grade English teacher attempts to unite feuding schools by launching a pen-pal project. Best friends Cassie, Emily and Lydia initiate the correspondence and are answered by Matthew, Charlie and Seb. Emily and Lydia are more than pleased with their matches, but quiet Cassie has a frightening experience with Matthew. When Lydia and Emily discover that Matthew has threatened their fragile friend, the Ashbury girls close ranks, declaring an all-out war on the Brookfield boys.

Final Rounds: A Father, A Son, The Golf Journey Of A Lifetime by James Dodson – Tom Rounds The Dodsons always knew where to go to solve their problems: the golf course. For decades, father and son took refuge there together; in the game, they found connection. Dodson fils’s memoir of his last lyrical golf excursion with his father, taken through England and Scotland in the months before his father’s death, is alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking. Final Rounds is as straight a shot into the heart of golf’s magnetic hold on golfers--and the tie that binds fathers and sons--as a 300yard drive that splits the fairway.
Crazy Love by Frances Chan – Brandon Scarbrough Chan, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, Calif., offers a radical call for evangelicals to consider and emulate in this debut guide to living crazy for God. Chan’s own life compels him to live with urgency and with good reason. His mother died giving birth to him, his stepmother died when he was nine, and his dad died when he was 12. Chan describes at length the sorry state of lukewarm Christians who strive for a life characterized by control, safety and an absence of suffering. In stark contrast, the book offers real-life accounts of believers who have given all—time, money, health, even their lives—in obedience to Christ’s call. Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition) by Antoine De Saint-Exupery (French Students Only) – Richard Sommers This is a classic tale of a Prince, stranded in the desert, who tells stories of his asteroid home planet. According to the book, the asteroid was sighted by a Turkish astronomer in
1909 who then made a formal demonstration of asteroid B612 to the International Astronomical Congress. “No one believed him on account of the way he was dressed.” It is a great fable, beautifully told. Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakauer – Mike Turner Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers, Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast. In May 2002, Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army. He was deeply troubled by 9/11, and he felt a strong moral obligation to join the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Two years later, he died on a desolate hillside in southeastern Afghanistan.
