Dear Reader,

Happy Summer! I hope you're enjoying the long days on the beach. I'm currently travelling but have left this Dear Reader issue in good hands! I'm delighted to introduce Melanie Fleishman, our esteemed Children's Book Buyer. She has wonderful suggestions for your young readers and has provided an excellent selection for you to browse here in this newsletter and in the store. 

Happy Reading!

The dog days are almost here and the good news is that there is a bumper crop of wonderful children’s books to entertain kids of all ages with more time on their hands.

There are stories about the beach, mythical creatures, and time travel; books to spark the imagination; books to inspire and enlighten young readers about leaders past and present, plus some sensational new books by favorite authors.
And since Fourth of July is just around the corner, help your kids celebrate and learn American history at the same time - one even has a recipe to add to your holiday festivities!
