E-Book Recommendations: New Kids’ Books

We haven’t looked at the new titles in the children’s section of OWWL2Go lately, and there are a gazillion (okay, 200) new options for your little ones to read — or be read to. Here are just a couple that are currently available.

Bears on Chairs

“Between the unerringly positive approach to a common early-childhood dilemma and the can’t-miss rhyme, this will find its place on many a shelf.” –Kirkus Reviews

Features an audio read-along! Four chairs. Four cuddly bears. All is well until Big Brown Bear shows up — what a stare! — and wants a seat. Can these clever bears put their heads together (among other things) and make space for one more? With expressive illustrations and a sustained rhyme in every line, this winsome tale makes sharing irresistible and is sure to have little listeners sitting up to take notice.

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates

The top-selling U.K. series for middle-grade readers now crosses the pond! Meet Tom Gates. When his teachers don’t have their beady eyes on him, he likes to draw pictures and write about stuff, like last summer’s worst camping vacation ever (five merits!), or how much he hates sitting next to nosy Marcus Meldrew, the most annoying boy at school. All Tom really wants is to score tickets to see the best band ever, Dude3, when they come to town, and to impress Amy Porter, who is very nice and smart (but is currently ignoring him). Tom’s teachers think he is easily distracted and “lacks focus,” but that’s a bit harsh—can he help it if his grumpy big sister, Delia, made him late for school (again), or that last night’s homework had to be sacrificed to stave off a vicious dog attack? Master of excuses, creative storyteller, and middle-school comedian extraordinaire, Tom Gates is guaranteed to get kids turning the pages—and keep them laughing.
