With school out this month for kids, the eternal question returns: What to read?

As the children’s manager at WORD Bookstores in Greenpoint, Aubrey Nolan is no stranger to getting that question.

The bookstore is such a proponent of children’s literature that it is opening a store devoted to kids’ books as well as toys, crafts, clothing and more, two doors down from its original Brooklyn location later this summer.

We asked Nolan to give her picks for summer reading for kids of all ages, with both recent releases and a couple classics thrown in for good measure. Here are her suggestions.
