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.
