The fall books have started to arrive on the shelves in BookKids! We are getting so many new and great books, that it’s hard to keep up. It’s also very exciting.
So starting with this week, we will be sharing that excitement and rounding up all the new kids books that hit our shelves during the fall publishing rush. As always, we’ll continue to post pictures of new releases on the store’s Instagram. Head over to our Teen Press Corps blog for the fall teen releases.
Authors with new books out today, or in the upcoming weeks, include but are definitely not limited to, Tomie dePaola, Dav Pilkey, Jacqueline Woodson, Holly Black & Cassandra Clare, Herve Tullet, and Kate DiCamillo. Fall is also bringing new posthumous books from classic authors Richard Scarry and Dr. Seuss. And there are even a few celebrities making their children’s book debut such as Keith Richards (yes, THAT Keith Richards), Jason Segal, and B.J. Novak (meet him at the store!). There are so many new books this fall, that there will be something for every reader.
Here are the picture books that arrived on our shelves today, Tuesday, August 26, 2014. We have also posted a round up of the new chapter books.
Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Emily Sutton
Ellen says, “This book speaks to the scientist in me. The microscopic world that is teeming all around us is at once fascinating and somewhat unnerving. The text and illustrations work so well together to put this tiny world under the microscope and blow it up to larger-than-life proportions. Kids will be enthralled to find out everything these tiny life forms do. A great choice for any reader interested in microbes.”
Hug Machine by Scott Campbell
Merrilee picked this book to read at story time today because it’s, “awfully darn cute.” She goes on to say, “he hugs everything – park benches, bears, total strangers, buildings, whatever. And you know why? Because ‘the hug machine is always open for business!'”
Little Elliot, Big City by Mike Curato
“I’m a fan of elephants,” says Demi. “This is a great new elephant book. Elliot is so sweet.” With minimal text and gorgeous, evocative illustrations, Little Elliot’s story about visiting the big, and a little scary, city come to life. A fantastic new addition to the canon of books about overcoming fears and making new friends. Lovely!
