Top 10 books for your beach bag!

Everyone is talking about their amazing vacations this year.


White sand beaches.


Exotic locations.


Luxury resorts.


My family is not doing any of those things...but we are going on a super long road trip to see some of our most beloved friends!  I am so completely stoked!

And though we aren't headed to a remote beach somewhere, we always pack a bag of amazing books for the road! I've compiled a list of middle grade titles that I want to read, my baby girl wants to read, or that I've read and know she will enjoy!

Books for your Beach Bag



Here are a few I'm planning on taking on the road for my middle grade reader (and me!):
