Here is a great resource to promote good books for summer reading. It's a website with video clips of famous authors (Eoin Colfer, Anne Fine, Terry Pratchett, etc.) giving book talks about books they have written.
I have been displaying all the books we have in the library which are featured on the website, and then playing the videos for our 5th graders and letting them take the books that interest them.
For children's & younger YA books, under "Category" choose "Children's" and then you can sort by title or author.
