Some Interesting Reading

While looking over a few book resources, I stumbled upon's list for the newest releases in Children's Literature for April through August. There are a number of series and sequels that are coming out in April. For those who enjoy the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, the next installment will be Ark Angel: An Alex Rider Adventure. In Chapter books, Laurence Yep has The Earth Dragon Awakes: The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 and Lois Lowry has Gossamer ready for an April release. Check out the link and see all the latest in Picture Books, Non-Fiction, and others that will soon be available.

Over at Children's Book Reviews, Elizabeth Kennedy has an interesting article about the numerous versions of the Cinderella story. She includes links to various projects, bibliographies, and a article on multicultural Cinderella stories. I have previously written a comparison of two Cinderella stories, which can be found here.

The BCPL Kids Page includes some good resources for those working on Science Fair Projects. Along with some helpful books to use, the BCPL includes steps to preparing a project. This is one of many places to search now that it is Science Fair time.

And finally, BookPage, courtesy of has a review for Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's latest chapter book, Roxie and the Hooligans.

There are a lot of new things coming our way. Enjoy.
