Kids’ Books to Remember (to help you on your next library visit)

November 6, 2016

kids' books to remember

I’m loving all of this beautiful fall weather and the leaves are gorgeous right now (although that means there will soon be SO MANY to rake). And of course, around here we’re all basking in the lovely afterglow of the Cubs win! I’ve never seen so many W banners, so much red and blue apparel, so many touching videos or witnessed such an amazing parade. Although I grew up a Tigers fan, after living in the Chicago area for many years, it is all very heart warming and exciting! I’m thrilled for all of you life long Cubs fans!

Now, to help you on your weekly library visit, here are some more titles (with links to descriptions), as well as some articles too good to miss!

More about Susan

Hi! I'm Susan, a wife, a mom and a recently retired elementary school librarian with 22 years of experience. One of my greatest joys is to connect kids with a perfect book, which then leads them to a lifelong love of learning. Through my blog, I'm hoping to reach parents, their children and teachers to help them find those special books. I’m also hoping to offer some tips and techniques to use with your children as you read aloud.


    1. Thanks for including my post, Susan. If parents enjoy the book as well, perhaps they will read more often to their children. I love your blog and book recommendations!

      1. You are so welcome, Jennie. Your message is such an important one to share with parents. Also, thank you for your kind words. I’m always so excited to see your blog notification in my inbox! It’s the first thing I read! Susan

I appreciate your comments!
