There are so many books published this season that quickly made it on my To-Be-Read list and I’ve had the opportunity to read a couple of them already. Most of the authors represented here have written books focused on relationships—friendships, romantic, and familial—and how they develop or change as the characters do.
Because I’m an author as well as a writing instructor and a reader, I’m often asked for book recommendations. Sometimes I’m asked to suggest books that are like my books, while other times I might need to think of titles that are good for a certain age range or in a specific genre.
When you see what some of the prizes are, you won’t be surprised that in this month’s little peek at the current children’s book trends on The Children’s Book Review there are some really great giveaways; including a chance to win an Amazon Kindle and a $100 Amex gift card!
Cindy Cardona is the Tween Librarian at the South Brunswick Public Library, in South Brunswick, NJ. She spends most of her time trying to figure out how to incorporate food into her library programs, trying to make the Children’s Department a little more colorful, and fighting the good fight to convince people that audiobooks are real books too!
Learning to read is a transformative moment in the life of any child. But for one who has been struggling, it’s particularly powerful.
