New Books to Think About

The August edition of BookPage has been out a few weeks now, but I thought I would focus in on its book reviews for “School Days Calming the first-day jitters” article. It included a number of books to help the little ones off to school, such as:

A Place Called Kindergarten by Jessica Harper, illustrated by G. Brian Karas
A Very Full Morning by Eva Montanari
Take a Kiss to School by Angela McAllister, illustrated by Sue Hellard
What a Day It Was at School! by Jack Prelutsky, illustrated by Doug Cushman

There are so many books already available in this category, but a few new ones are always nice to choose from. Although you may already have a favorite, check out the selection at the library. Besides the Miss Bindergarten series like Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, author Kevin Henkes has a few that are really good for going to school like Chrysanthemum.

BookPage also had a few nice reviews for the middle grade level of 8 to 12. One that really looks interesting as well as humorous is: Cinderella (As If You Didn't Already Know the Story) by Barbara Ensor

Happy Reading.
