Here are some recent hits we found at the library:

Supersister by Beth Cadena, illustrated by Frank W. Dormer – a little girl appears to be full of herself — until you get to the sweet ending.

My Abuelita by Tony Johnston, illustrated by Yuyi Morales – from a child’s perspective about living with her larger-than-life grandmother. Spanish words sprinkled throughout.

Mercy Watson series by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Chris Van Dusen – my 3 reading children think these books are hysterical. Silly, silly, silly with cute illustrations.

Inkheart by Cornelia Flunke – this one was a big hit with my 12-year old son. Almost as intriguing as Harry Potter.
