Don’t miss out on this year’s well-deserved Newbery Medal winner. Your life in not complete until you’ve met Ulysses, the flying, typing, poetry-writing squirrel. This book has just the right balance of sweetness, humor, action sequences and oddball characters to appeal to loads of young readers.
I highly recommend Raina Telgemeier’s three graphic novels Sisters, Drama and Smile. They are full of heart, humor and cringe-worthy childhood memories many of us can relate to. Smile and Sisters are an autobiographical companion set about Raina’s 1980’s bay area childhood perfect for ages 10 and up. Drama has a tad more mature themes and is great for middle schoolers on up.
