It’s July so it’s time for another book calendar for all those July celebrations. I’m going to share these books a little differently this month. I’m going to split the books into two different posts so you can plan out for half of the month. So dive on in to some books for July for the first half of July.
July 1 – International Joke Day
What kid doesn’t love a joke book? My students are obsessed with these books from National Geographic Kids. There’s a whole series of these “Just Joking” books.
July 2 – World UFO Day
I don’t know much about UFOs but I know that this book is adorable. It’s a unique take on the Three Bears tale that your students (or kids) will love.
July 3 – Eat Beans Day
I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of lima beans. Camilla Cream won’t eat her lima beans and disastrous things happen to her. So be sure to eat those beans!
July 4 – Independence Day
Happy Independence Day! Check out this beautiful book about the colors of the United States.
July 5 – Work-a-holic Day
Who is working on the day after Independence Day? Take it easy and go on a road trip. This fun book can help you plan out where you want to go. Plus it will keep the kids busy in the car.
July 6 – International Kissing Day
We all know that kids think kissing is gross but it is a symbol of love. Read this lovely book to encourage kids to spread love and kindness through simple acts.
July 7 – Chocolate Day
Today is one of my favorite days! Chocolate is just the best. Check out the sweet history of chocolate in this fun book.
July 8 – Video Games Day
It’s hot so I’m sure that video games are a choice activity from all kids. If your child likes video games, get them this book to encourage them to read about their favorite activity.

Today’s book is a classic book that I’m sure you read as a child. Spend time reading this book to your child and enjoy some blueberry muffins as a treat.

It breaks my heart to see lonely kids at school. “The Invisible Boy” is a sweet book about noticing everyone around you so no one is lonely.
July 12 – Different Colored Eyes Day
Today is perfect for my nephew who has one blue eye and one brown eye. Celebrate all eye colors with this book about an inspirational eye doctor, Patricia Bath. I love this series about amazing women scientists!
