The jittery anticipation of a long-awaited book release makes reading even more fun for kids! Finishing off the year with one of these releases will set the tone for your child's reading success in 2020, and give them plenty to discuss with their friends who are also diving into these books.

These hot-off-the-press titles include Dog Man #8: Fetch-22, which gets even reluctant readers asking for more page-turning time, and the full-color edition of Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers #9, which will have your kid in a happy fit of giggles. For the little ones, adorable new books like I Love You, Baby Shark and Little Eva Loves build pre-reading skills and teach important lessons about love for family and friends.
