Cokato Public Library is closed for renovations. The library will reopen Thursday, April 24.
Children enjoy reading fiction, and they are open to many different kinds of stories. Fortunately, the popularity of children's books draws a lot of good authors into the area, and publishers release a steady stream of books for boys and girls of all ages..
The library keeps a list of new kids' fiction on the New, Best & Fun page. (You'll find a tab for New, Best & Fun on the catalog).
A seasonal title on the current list is "Who Stole New Year's Eve?" by Martha Freeman. It's the latest in the Chickadee Court mysteries and involves 12-year-old sleuths who are tracking a thief who stole 37 ice sculptures. "Legend Of The Lure" by Jake Maddox pits a young angleragainst a fish his grandfather spent years chasing. And My Little Pony fans are enjoying "Through The Mirror," a novelisation of the popular Equestria Girls movie.
You'll find adventures, mysteries and real-life issues in children's fiction, so look at the list to find fiction for younger readers.
