New Year, New Books!

Posted on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 by Josh

2017 looks like it’s going to be a great year for children’s literature. There are tons of new children’s books coming out, but the three I’m most looking forward to are “Nancy Clancy: Late-Breaking News!” “We’re All Wonders” and “The Lengend of Rock Paper Scissors.”

Jane O’Connor – Release: 02/28/2017

If you a fan of the “Fancy Nancy” picture books, you’ll love the “Nancy Clancy” chapter books feature a slightly older Nancy. “Late-Breaking News” is the finale to the series and finds Nancy trying to be the star reporter of the Third Grade Gazette. There will be plenty of mystery, mischief and fun to be had!

R.J. Palacio – Release: 03/28/2017

R.J. Palacio’s “Wonder” captured the hearts and minds of readers young and old with a message that encourages tolerance and kindness. While she has written many follow-up chapter books, Palacio has decided to spread her message to a younger audience. “We’re All Wonders” is a picture book that will feature gorgeous full-page illustrations done by Palacio herself.

Drew Daywalt – Release: 04/04/2017

Drew Daywalt is the award-winning author behind “The Day the Crayons Quit” and “The Day the Crayons Came Home.” His new book will be a witty tale about Rock, Paper and Scissors, the three legendary warriors who started the timeless game we all know. “The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors” promises to be just as original and laugh-out-loud funny as “The Crayons” books.

After grade school I lost a little bit of passion for reading. In college, though, I found the library, and, in a lot of ways, the library found me! Now I read, discover, and imagine more often, and I’m healthier and happier for it.
