We’re giving you an advanced preview of four new children’s books for young readers! As an educator, my husband feels strongly that an early love for reading truly helps kids flourish in school. These new book titles are geared towards children in preschool through first grade, and I’ve included a video preview of the new children’s books below.
This is a partnered post. All opinions are my own.
New Children’s Books for Young Readers
The Book Hog by Greg Pizzoli
The Book Hog loves books! The way they look, the way they feel, the way they smell and he’ll grab whatever he can find. There’s only one problem: he can’t read! But when a kind librarian invites him to join for storytime, this literature-loving pig discovers the treasure that books really are.
This hardcover book will appeal to kids in preschool through first grade. They will fall in love with this adorable and funny pig! The book releases March 26th in stores and online at amazon.com. Order it now!
Watch Out for Wolf by Anica Mrose Rissi
There’s so much for these little piggies to do before their party-they have to bake the cake, decorate the house, deliver the invitations, and, most importantly, watch out for Wolf! With clever nods to various fairytales and nursery rhymes sprinkled throughout, this picture book takes the classic Three Little Pigs story in a new direction, celebrating friendship and great party planning.
Readers will instantly recognize these little piggies, but will be delighted to discover the unexpected! This hardcover book releases April 16th in stores and online at amazon.com. Order it now!
