The Best New Children's Books of the Month

Jan 12, 2023

The new year is a great time to encourage your child to build a keen reading habit. Whether your child is exploring picture books, graphic novels, or young adult books right now, there are a few choice titles they won't want to miss this month. These books, which cover important themes like self-esteem and kindness among others, are full of rich narratives and unforgettable characters. 

For instance, How Do Dinosaurs Learn to Be Kind? is perfect for young readers, and will help your child learn how to develop empathy and compassion for others. 

American history fans will adore the new book If You Sailed on the Titanic. Readers will explore what it was like to be on the Titanic, including details about what people ate and how they slept.  

Meanwhile, for graphic novel enthusiasts there's Captain America: The Ghost Army, an engrossing tale about Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes fighting off something they have never seen before — a Ghost Army! Readers will be at the edge of their seats as the group encounters enemies who are impervious to bullets and flames.
