100 Book Summer Challenge

IT’S BACK! For the second year in a row, Dr. Young and Miss Stuart are challenging ALL Percy Priest Tigers to read 100 books over the ten weeks of summer break!

Challenge sheets went home last Friday. For each book read (chapter books: 50 pgs=1 book), color a paw print on the front and write the title on the back. Recommended summer reading lists went home last Friday and can be found here too.

Students can check out up to 100 books/playaways from the Nashville Public Library. Audiobooks (See Amazon for page counts) and family read alouds are highly encouraged! Be sure to check out the Nashville Public Library’s Libby app for audiobooks. Email Miss Stuart ( for library card info.

Each student who completes the challenge will receive recognition and a prize in August. Extra 100 Book Challenge sheets will be on the PPE front porch during the summer. See below for a suggested reading timeline:
