The Best New Children's Books of the Month

Feb 15, 2024

With so many great new books hitting the shelves this February, there's no better time to encourage your child to build a reading routine to take them through the winter. Whether your child is exploring picture books, graphic novels, or young adult books, there are plenty of titles they won't want to miss. These books, which cover important themes like self-esteem and friendship among others, are full of rich narratives and unforgettable characters. 

For instance, in Peppa Pig: We Love Our Families, young readers will join Peppa Pig and her friends as they celebrate all the unique qualities that make every family special. From families with two moms and two dads to big families and small families, this touching story highlights the love that all types of families share.

Older readers will be captivated by Heroes, a historical fiction novel about the attack on Pearl Harbor told through the lens of best friends Frank and Stanley. Written by New York Times best-selling author Alan Gratz, this gripping story explores themes of bravery, prejudice, and what it means to stand up for what's right.

Meanwhile, young adult readers will love I Hope This Doesn't Find You. From being valedictorian to school captain, Sadie Wen is perfect on paper. Being a model-student is not always easy, so she channels her frustrations into her email drafts. Sadie doesn't hold back on how she really feels, because nobody will ever read them. That is, until they're accidentally sent out.
