Welcome back to school! It doesn’t seem possible that it’s already after Labor Day and schools are in full swing. Here in Portland, we are fortunately still feeling the sun on our faces–and let our book pages be illuminated with natural light. (And appreciating those sun-drenched hours as there are less of them each day . . .) But back-to-school brings new excitement as well, even for first timers. As always, there are terrific books to celebrate the journey. You’ll want to check out Mo Willems’s latest Pigeon book, as well as the scores of middle grade graphic novels. There seem to more new books published daily, from board books for toddlers to YA thrillers. And we have so many to recommend! In the weeks to come, we have books for the whole family, from perfect read-alouds for toddlers, kinders, and early readers (like the new Mo Willems) all the way to suggestions for parents, tweens, and YA fans. We’ll share some great reads, mostly brand new ones: tween graphic novels, lovely and enticing picture books, and a great read for parents. We continue our excitement about the many new YA books recently released: we think you’ll be intrigued by TANGLED IN TIME).
Some surprises are in store; more fantastic new books are hitting the shelves every day. We are loving some of the new books for infants and toddlers. We promise to keep you informed! Hope you’ll also share your finds with us, too. Happy Reading!
