New Books for Kids Fall 2021

Happy Wednesday! I mentioned yesterday that this seems to be a slower time for publication of books that I can’t wait to read, but it is a booming time of year for kids’ books. I’ve gathered a list of books from authors that my kids or kids in my library love. I’ve included the title and cover for each book. Click on the title for a summary of the book. I hope you find something for the young reader in your life.

Whoa! That’s a lot of books by favorite authors! When I sat down to write this post, I did not think it would be this long. I guess that’s why I’m an elementary school media specialist – I love children’s books! Now, is this every single book coming out in the fall of 2021, no. Did I miss some good ones, I’m sure. I did decide to skip the Christmas and winter holiday books for this list. I will add them to my Christmas books list coming up in a few months.

If Fred the storm stays away, I’m planning on spending the day at the pool with friends. I need to get back to reading a few more children’s books because school is starting and I wasn’t to have some good ones to share in our first week of media class. I’ll keep you posted on what I’m reading. You can always checkout my Books 2021 page to see what I’m reading and what I thought about it. Have a great day full of sunshine and CHILDREN’S books!
