Here are a few more of the new books for children we’ve received lately. Why not check one of them out to use in our HOLIDAY CHALLENGE. For this fun event, we are challenging you to read any four books by midnight, December 17th. The challenge is open to all ages: adults can choose to read four books to their children and log those in. We’ve got a login website for you to tell us what you’ve read — just create an account and you’re ready to go.
So why bother? First, for the enjoyment of reading! And second, because we’ll pick a winner from among those who have read four or more books to receive a $50 gift certificate to Walmart! And who couldn’t use a little extra money during the holidays? So stop by and check out a few new books to get started.
Dog Diaries: Curse of the Mystery Mutt
Something so DREADFUL, it’s enough to curl your tail with TERROR (if you have one, of course) … A spine-jangling HOWLING has been heard in the middle of the night, favorite toys have been STOLEN, trash bags have been SHREDDED and all the best pee-spots have been RE-SCENTED! It must have something to do with the NIGHT OF THE HOWLY WIENER, which is only days away… Can you find the evil mastermind who is TERRIER-izing our town?! For middle school-aged children.
Fox Versus Winter
Fun-loving, mischievous Fox — the hilarious trickster character featured in Geisel Award–winning Fox the Tiger — goes up against a surprising foe! Fox does not like winter. None of his friends are around to play. He is bored and alone. Then Fox has an idea. If he cannot escape winter, he will fight it! Fox versus Winter is a My First I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for shared reading with a child. Other Fox books include: Fox the Tiger, Fox Is Late, Fox and the Jumping Contest, and Fox and the Bike Ride.

The Couch Potato has everything within reach and doesn’t have to move from the sunken couch cushion. But when the electricity goes out, Couch Potato is forced to peel away from the comforts of the living room and venture outside.

Readers of all ages will laugh along as their new best spuddy learns that balancing screen time and playtime is the root to true happiness.
