Reading recommendations for kids
November 9, 2022
Young (and old!) fans of Divya Srinivasan’s Little Owl books might be interested to hear that a new title is on the way.
Little Owl’s Love by Divya Srinivasan
The star of Little Owl's Night returns to find love in his beloved nighttime forest. "What do I love" Little Owl thought… there were so many things. Gliding along on a quiet night, Little Owl looks for the things that make him happy--shimmering stars, winking fireflies, listening to the cricket song, and most of all, spending time with his good friends.

What’s New This Month
Other series have new volumes on the way to library shelves as well, including Big Nate, Minecraft, Owl Diaries, and Geronimo Stilton Reporter. Also on the way are some more beautiful picture books from authors like Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Linda Ashman, Sherri Duskey Rinker, and more.

What We’re Reading
Here are some quotes from library staff about their latest recommended picks: 

Hello Hedgehog: Can I Have a Turn? by Norm Feutl: “This is the best book I’ve ever read on taking turns. It’s so hard when the toy is so fun, but that also makes it so frustrating for a friend who’s waiting patiently! How will they resolve the timeless conflict of one toy and two children?”
The Stack by Vanessa Roeder: “Popular with my 3-year old, this is a not-too-long, rhyming, sweet and silly bedtime book about a girl's scheme to get a nightlight.”
Pug by Ethan Long: “Only about three words per page but still so funny--how does the author do that?”
A Birthday for Cow by Jan Thomas: “All Jan Thomas's easy readers are great--so funny but still very simple for the newest readers.”
Rumple Buttercup by Matthew Gray Gubler: “Absurd creature hides from the outside world until people make it clear that they know of him and love him.”
Temple Alley Summer by Sachiko Kashiwaba: “A great translated novel that shows culture, friendship, and growth.”
