Summer time is upon us. In both Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, we are delighting in the warm weather and blue skies. With summer vacation here, what could be better than book suggestions for the lazy days of summer? In the weeks ahead, we’ll share some great reads, old and new: more bios of social activists, suggestions for babies and toddlers, even new poetry for young and not-so-young readers. We continue our excitement about the many new YA books recently released (the new Red Queen Novel is out!), graphic novels for tweens continue to captivate us, and some wonderful picture books for the youngest readers have been delighting friends and families and we are happy to recommend them. 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!
