“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables~~~
So much to appreciate in the transition to autumn. The air feels different as we turn to a new season, and new beginnings. As the air turns crisper and we develop new schedules and rhythms, there is nothing more satisfying than escaping into the pleasures of a good book. I always slip a few books into my ever-ready backpack, for any fall adventures on the weekend or tucked into free moments during the day. I still (always!) have lots to read–and recommend. In the weeks ahead, we look at some terrific new books for toddlers, poetry for the whole family, mysteries for the tween set, and updates on books for children and adolescents by some of our favorite authors and illustrators. Some surprises are in store; more fantastic new books are hitting the shelves every day. We can hardly keep up with all the good reads–but we’re doing our best. We promise to keep you informed! Hope you’ll also share your finds with us, too. Happy Reading!
