Picture Books Growing Up!

Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by Jenforkids

Just recently, I came across another fun title not to be  missed! 

Check out this hilarious new chapter book:

Bowling Alley Bandit Bowling Alley Bandit

I first met Arnie the doughnut several years ago in the humorous picture book by Laurie Keller. The book begs to be read aloud!  That story set the stage for this follow-up novel for young readers. Those children who enjoyed having Keller's book read to them a few years ago as a preschooler now have the opportunity to read all about the personality-loaded doughnut themselves.  Who doesn't love a good doughnut?

Nick Bruel's Bad Kitty series is another winner here -- going from good picture book to funny novel.  The chapter books hit just the right spot for those beginning to read longer books on their own plus kids who still enjoy a few pictures along with the story.  Even graphic novel readers will find these books appealing...try it out on your reluctant reader!

These are just a few of my favorites.  Check in with your local chidlren's librarian for more.
