Post 67

How beautiful are these covers? I just couldn’t resist! Here are the top 5 new children’s books releases of June 2016.

  1. The Gallery by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
    Publication date: June 14th 2016
    A riveting historical art mystery for fans of Chasing Vermeer and The Westing Game, set in the Roaring Twenties! Inspired by true events described in a fascinating author’s note, The Gallery is a 1920s caper told with humor and spunk that readers today will love.
  2. Nobody Likes a Goblin by Ben Hatke
    Publication date: June 7th 2016
    Goblin, a cheerful little homebody, lives in a cosy, rat-infested dungeon, with his only friend, Skeleton. Every day, Goblin and Skeleton play with the treasure in their dungeon. But one day, a gang of “heroic” adventurers bursts in. These marauders trash the place, steal all the treasure, and make off with Skeleton—leaving Goblin all alone!
  3. Every Single Second by Tricia Springstubb
    Publication date: June 7th 2016
    From acclaimed author Tricia Springstubb comes an incredibly powerful and timely novel about how a single act impacts a community, a city, and the way a young girl views the world around her. Tricia Springstubb’s extraordinary novel is about the shifting bonds of friendship and the unconditional love of family, the impact of class and racial divides on a neighbourhood and a city, and a girl awakening to awareness of a world bigger and more complex than she’d ever imagined.
  4. The Distance To Home by Jenn Bishop
    Publication date: June 28th 2016
    Last summer, Quinnen was the star pitcher of her baseball team, the Panthers. They’re headed for the championship, and her loudest supporter at every game was her best friend and older sister, Haley. This summer, everything is different. Haley’s death, at the end of last summer, has left Quinnen and her parents reeling. Without Haley in the stands, Quinnen doesn’t want to play baseball. It seems like nothing can fill the Haley-sized hole in her world.
  5. School’s First Day of School by Adam Rex & Christian Robinson
    Publication date: June 28th 2016
    It’s the first day of school at Frederick Douglass Elementary and everyone’s just a little bit nervous, especially the school itself. What will the children do once they come? Will they like the school? Will they be nice to him?

I’m really excited about Adam Rex’s book by the way. Earlier this year I read his book The True Meaning of Smekday and I loved it. His books are always really fun with an original premise. I can’t wait to read it!

Happy reading,
