Faith just posted a new horse book, Willow King by Chris Platt. It has some kid-romance parts that she says are kind of embarrassing, but they're good. Check out the summary in the Horse section Ages 9+.
Hey everyone! I just posted seven of Andrew Clements' "School Stories" in the Realistic Fiction section: Frindle, The School Story, The Last Holiday Concert, Lunch Money, No Talking, Room One, and A Week in the Woods. (Note: Room One is also in the Mystery section) These are all good books, with entertaining plots and fun characters. They're all about totally different things, which is why I didn't put them into a series together, but they're kind of on the same train of thought. I highly recommend them as light reads about kids and what they can be capable of. Just scroll down to Ages 8+.
I also added Chasing the Dragon to the Christian and Nonfiction sections in Ages 13+. This book tells of the amazing conversions, healing, and miracles seen by Jackie Pullinger, a woman who settled in destitute Hong Kong to spread the light there.
Also, we've separated out the horse genre books from the animal section and put them into Horse. So if you love horses, want some fun animal books to read, or want to get into some great classics like Black Beauty and My Friend Flicka (insert BOLD TYPE here, because I LOVE these books. They're GREAT for EVERYONE), then go check it out.
Hey everyone! Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys Super Mysteries are now in the Mystery section if you scroll down to Ages 8+. These are fun because of the characters working together. Faith just put Moon Shadow on as well in the Animal section, Ages 8+. It's a pretty fun horse book.
Also, The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict just came out April 10! To read about this prequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society, go to Mystery and scroll down to Ages 9+. It was fun, though a bit different from the first trilogy because of the main character. Who knew Mr. Benedict was such a charmingly witty little boy? We enjoyed it.
Our whole family really enjoyed The Mysterious Benedict Society as well. If you would like to check out this series, go to Adventure Ages 9+.
Hey everyone! It's April! Two last books posted in March were Storm Chaser by Chris Platt (Animal Ages 9+) and Firehorse by Diane Lee Wilson (Animal & Historical fiction Ages 11+). These are both good for people who like horses, and Firehorse is especially good for historical/realistic fiction lovers.
