Scott Westerfeld-a-mania

If you're not already following the man on Twitter, then you may have missed the super exciting announcement he just made... Scott Westerfeld has finished the manuscript for GOLIATH, the final book of his Leviathan Trilogy (Book 1: Leviathan, Book 2: Behemoth). And not only is the book finished, but it's going to be released more than a month earlier than previously anticipated, on September 13th, 2011! So if you haven't started this uber-cool steam punk retelling of WWI pick it up now... and lucky you, you won't have to wait for the thrilling conclusion for a year like the rest of us have! For ages 10 and up.

Guys Read: Funny Business edited by Jon Scieszka

It's hard to deny that there's a glut of books written especially for girls... so thank goodness for Guys Read! Headed up by former Ambassador for Children's Literature JON SCIESZKA (rhymes with fresca!), Guys Read provides the kind of lit the fellas can get excited about-- and we're excited too. With contributions from an all star line up of kids authors, like Mac Barnett, Jeff Kinney and Eoin Colfer who wouldn't be? For ages 8-12.

Ribbit Rabbit by Candace Ryan, illustrated by Mike Lowry

Books just don't get much cuter than this new one from Candace Ryan and Mike Lowry. Minimal words in this silly, super simple story make this book a must for parents with squirmy kids who just cannot sit still. Blessedly brief, with charming illustrations, Ribbit Rabbit treats readers to robots, playtime and a heart-warming set of bestest-forever-and-ever friends. So if you like Mo Willems' books, Bear in Underwear or especially the Socksquatch, give this book a go!

Share Poetry With Your Kids!

Ok, so not all kids are going to love Billy Collins... but don't worry, there are plenty of awesome poets who write especially for tots!
