I’ve got a huge stack of boxes full of new books waiting to be checked in! Here are some highlights:
by Jerry Spinelli
(Knopf, paperback, $8.99)
Ages 10 & up
Stargirl is one of my favorite characters (find her first book here). She is especially good for middle school girls who feel like they’re not fitting in or that they’re different from their peers. Stargirl is a free spirit and a unique heroine.
by Nadine Brun-Cosme & Olivier Tallec
(Enchanted Lion Books, hardcover, $16.95)
Ages 3 & up
I love the illustrations of this new picture book. It tells the story of two wolves, one big and one little, who become friends. This is perfect for younger siblings or any kid who is having trouble being “little.” It’s also a great tale of friendship.
by Libba Bray
(Delacorte Press, paperback, $10.99)
by Mr. Warburton
(HarperCollins, hardcover, $17.99)
When Mom tells Noah that it’s time to leave, he says “No!” What’s great about this book is that each frame features Noah saying “no” in a different language, which turns a book that could have been very negative into one that is informational and fun. And of course, it ends with a big YES!
