NEW!

Tulips and hyacinth in full bloom Peonies starting to bud. . .!  But despite the calendar, it doesn’t feel like spring yet in our neck of the woods, tho’  there are definite signs.  Whether you are reading indoors or out, donning sweaters (or shedding them), or perhaps just smelling spring in the air, there is nothing more satisfying than escaping into the pleasures and inspiration of a good book.   We are at the ready with lots of books to recommend.  In the weeks ahead, we look at some terrific new chapter books for early readers, hot off the presses retellings of favorite fairy tales,  great new non-fiction, 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–there is an especially rich crop of next installments of popular series for tweens and teens. We promise to keep  you informed!  Hope you’ll also share your finds with us, too.   Happy Reading!

    You made my day! Thank you! If there are ever any special book types or ages you’re interested in, let us know… we’re always happy to have an excuse to explore a new subject or idea.

  3. I have a four year old girl who loves books, so if there is a subject she’s burning to know more about I will make a request. 🙂 Thank you!

    What are suggested book titles to read as an introduction to a Parent Workshop ELA K – 2 and Grades 3 – 5. Something to get parents motivated about sharing books with their child.

    I would suggest the above link to share with parents, or some of the lists from within it. They could choose from classic read-aluds to “read by myself” books. Let me know what you decide! I’d love to hear how your workshop goes!
