Read a New Book Month
December is “Read a New Book” month and what a perfect time to dive into a new book! Starting a new book, to me, has always been like taking off on a new adventure. It is a chance to meet new characters and lose yourself in a story. With the shorter days and colder temperatures, this is a great time to start reading a new book. Books also make great gifts. Below is a list of some recently released books for children and young adults.
Books for children:P is for Pterodactyl: The WORST Alphabet Book Ever by Raj Haldar
Polar Bear Wish by Lori Evert
The Snowy Nap by Jan Brett
Mikey and the Dragon by Jacko Willink
Tomorrow I’ll Be Brave by Jessica Hische
Books for kids in the middle:Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Meltdown (#13) by Jeff Kinney
Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild #6 (from the creator of Captain Underpants) by Dav Pilkey
The “I Survived” series by Lauren Tarshis
The “Treasure Hunters” series by James Patterson
Books for teens/young adults:Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Books are a great way to learn about something new, explore the world around us, solve problems, and get involved in adventures. Encourage everyone in your family to read a new book this month. Enjoy a good book!
