It’s that time of the month again-time to choose new books for our bookshelf! It’s really fun to see what’s new out there in the bookstores and I think children’s books these days are just so important. Not only are they a great escape from reality, but they can teach lessons that maybe aren’t so easy for us to explain ourselves. While our kids get so much reading in school, I do like to make sure my children have books to come home to that they enjoy to read in their free time.
Here are 14 new releases to check out this month!
Firstly, I mentioned that there are books that can aid in teaching young readers important life lessons. The reading level does not matter, because these stories can be told in chapter books, a picture book, graphic novels, fairy tales and really through any kids’ books. Subjects are taught in school, but there are things children learn at home that maybe are better told through a great book for young minds such as personal care and racial equality! Books have come a long way over the years and I am so thrilled with the options these days, especially for young adult readers.
Moreover, while our children get so much homework and assigned story books, I do think it’s important to have a great escape for them in their free time from school work and activities. For instance, the joy of reading can be learned early on, which is what I’ve always tried to instill in my children. Books are an escape from reality and if that means they need an interactive book or a classic tale, they can choose to read whatever their hearts desire. My kids are older now, so they love Rick Riordan and j. k. rowling Harry Potter Series, as well as the Chronicles of Narnia. But Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle reads are fun for younger children!
Finally, allowing our children time to use their imaginations after learning math and history all day is vital. It keeps them hopeful and there’s nothing wrong with a great imagination. It’s what makes things more fun! Some of the best children’s books are stories where the wildest things happen and they can not just in a story. But we want our children to have big dreams and goals and learn that they can accomplish anything they put their minds to! We are raising the next generation of leaders.
