The Books Every Child Should Read in 2022

Feb 16, 2022

Whether your child is exploring picture books, graphic novels, or young adult books right now, there are a few choice titles they need as they start the year. Your child's 2022 reading list should include these books, which cover important themes like self-esteem and kindness among others, for all ages through rich narratives and unforgettable characters. 

For instance, in the third installment of the popular series, Cat Kid Comic Club: On Purpose, Molly, Flippy, and Lil' Petey continue their hilarious adventures in creating their very own comic masterpieces. This time, they explore the themes of purpose and staying true to their own unique visions.  

Fantasy fans will become immersed in The Witchery, an engrossing tale of baby witch Logan as she begins her schooling at Mesmortes Coven Academy and attempts to break an ancient curse that has possessed the town. 

Older readers will love titles like Loveless, where they meet relatable protagonist Georgia as she navigates through becoming comfortable in her own skin and explores what it means to find true love and connection.
