Last week I posted about the rise of the Graphic Novel - a phenomena almost no elementary parent could miss!
This week, I wanted to touch on some super cool new series we have in the Library for our beginning chapter book readers.
If your child is a little daunted by or doesn't quite have the stamina yet for the more traditional chapter book, with it's dense pages & thicker volumes, these series might just be the ticket.
New to us this year is Doreen Cronin's Chicken Squad. A backyard group of chicken friends, this series follows their adventures as they solve mysteries....and simultaneously cause a touch of trouble!
Eerie Elementary, by Jack Chabert is perfect for the month of October! A "scary" series revolving around the main character Sam Graves & his friends who have to defend themselves against a school that seems to be - wait for it... ALIVE!
While I'm confident there won't be any nightmares after reading this, it does provide entertainment for those students who are seeking a horror & thrills genre!
Also new to Reed is Tracey West's Dragon Masters series - tales of a "bygone" era of Kingdoms, Dragons & a ton of adventures. This fantasy read is yet another one perfect for early chapter book readers & with plenty of adventures, we might just be creating some early Game of Thrones fans!
And finally, if you haven't already met the Owl Diaries by Rebecca Elliott, then don't be surprised if you do this year. Eva the Owl is the central focus on this series and each tale has really positive messaging for our young readers. Reflective of the values we want our children to be developing, Eva's adventures offer not only a fun read but a takeaway also.
