Presenter: Penny Peck

  • Do you freeze when a child requests a “good book new to read?”
  • Do you feel like you always recommend the same old books?
  • Would you like to learn more about children’s books reflecting our multicultural communities?

Discover the new books that you can offer to children who use your library! Hear about books published in late 2014 and Spring 2015 that will be popular with children ages 0-12. These include board books, picture books, easy readers, transitional fiction, genre fiction for middle grades, graphic novels, poetry, nonfiction, and more. Hear about books that will appeal to the “reluctant reader,” and books that will have popularity with a wide audience of children.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about new children’s and tween books for various age ranges and reading levels, including very simple new books for those just learning to read.
  • Celebrate new multicultural books to meet the needs of all children – diversity matters!
  • Hear a quick recap of the award-winning children’s book announced in February.
  • Discover books that will grab the attention of reluctant readers, including the newest graphic novels for kids, nonfiction, and pop culture titles.
  • Take away a list of helpful websites to use when doing readers’ advisory, and sites that will help you keep up-to-date on the latest children’s books

This webinar will be of interest to all library staff and volunteers who serve children ages 0-12, in public or school libraries.
