Join esteemed children’s librarian and author Penny Peck in her yearly review of what’s new in children’s literature. Discover new books published in late 2017 and Spring 2018 that will be popular with children ages 0-12, including books that reflect the diversity of the children we serve! These include board books, picture books, easy readers, transitional fiction, genre fiction for middle grades, graphic novels, poetry, nonfiction, and more! Hear about books that will be popular with a wide audience of children, including recent award-winners. Also, find out about books that fit the 2018 summer reading themes of music and travel.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about new children’s and tween books for various age ranges and reading levels, including very simple new books for those just learning to read.
  • Find new books perfect for storytime and to offer parents as read-alouds.
  • Celebrate new multicultural books to meet the needs of all children – diversity matters!
  • Hear about new nonfiction and informational books, both for homework and for fun.
  • Discover books that will grab the attention of reluctant readers, including the newest graphic novels for kids, popular series, and books that relate to the 2018 summer learning themes.
  • Take away a list of helpful websites to use when doing readers’ advisory, and sites that will help you keep up-to-date on the latest children’s books

This webinar will be of interest to any library staff member or volunteer who serves children ages 0-12, in either public or school libraries.
