New Kids Books: Fall 2018

I have a total obsession with children's books. Luckily for me, Lucille lets me read a variety of book types to her. Gus would prefer I just stick to trains and ninjas.

There are some pretty amazing children's books coming out this Fall and I can't wait to get my hands on some these. I will pre-order almost all of them, I'm sure. Some of these are authors I know and love while others are just totally cute looking or on a topic that we LOVE in our house.


Carmela Full of Wishes - I love all Matt de la Pena books and this one looks as lovely and moving as all his others.

Eliza: The Story of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton - Yes, I am still Hamilton obsessed. We listen to the Hamilton Mixtape in the car so much that the kids have it memorized. I saw this book and thought it would be a fun way to introduce Hamilton characters into their word.

Baby Loves Structural Engineering - Might be a baby book - but I still want to get this for my kids just so the can learn the science stuff. This is part of a whole series.

Gwendolyn! - This book looks adorable. Who doesn't love penguins!?

Night Train, Night Train - Because if a new book on trains comes out -- we should totally get it. At the very least it will add to the choices Gus gives us at bedtime...

The Story Orchestra: Sleeping Beauty - I've been working on listening to more classical music with the kids. We have the Vivaldi story orchestra, but one of Sleeping Beauty would be a total winner.

Goodnight, Anne - Another thing I've started is introducing Anne of Green Gables to Lucille. I don't remember what age I watched the series on PBS - but I LOVED it. This is a cute way to introduce the characters without jumping right into the whole book.

Counting Birds: The Idea That Helped Save Our Feathered Friends - Gus and Lucille have an ornithologist for a Papou - so a book like this is perfect. We love learning about wildlife and animals of any kind.

The Snow Lion - Nevermind the fact that anything with a lion is a win for Lucille, the first line in the description is "A beautiful, reassuring story with a gentle touch of magic." How can you say no to that?

I'm sure these are all going to be amazing - but maybe I can get Lucille to do some book reviews so we know what kids think too. I'll keep you posted.
