Disney's summer reading list: 15 book picks for ages 0-16

Disney is also donating one million books to Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide.

Disney is encouraging kids and families to open up a book and their imagination with its first-ever Summer Reading List and corresponding activities.

Made up of 15 recommendations for ages 0-16, the list features new books from fan favorite authors including New York Times bestselling author Kwame Mbalia, Pixar animator Mike Wu, Serena Valentino and more. Educational National Geographic titles and classic Disney stories are also included.

To go along with the recommendations, Disney Publishing Worldwide is donating 1 million books to Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Disney will provide Boys & Girls Clubs of America with virtual programming opportunities as well, led by Disney authors and illustrators.

“This donation comes at a time that is especially challenging for so many families and we know it will go a long way,” said Chad Royal-Pascoe, national vice president of corporate & cause partnerships at Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

All these books are available for purchase on the ShopDisney website.
