Disney released their first-ever Summer Reading list for kids and families to enjoy while at home. The list is comprised of 15 recommendations for ages 0 through 16 and features new books from fan favorite authors. Also to help ensure that more readers have access to books this summer and beyond, Disney Publishing is also donating one million books to Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.

Disney will also provide Boys and Girls Clubs of America with virtual programming led by Disney authors and illustrators, as part of the organization’s summer engagement series for club members

 “We have a long-standing relationship with Disney and are thrilled to bring one million books to children who participate in our programs,” commented Chad Royal-Pascoe, National Vice President, Corporate & Cause Partnerships, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “This donation comes at a time that is especially challenging for so many families and we know it will go a long way.”
