We also have a display page of selected titles for Young Adults. Our YA book buyer has put together an engaging selection of books for teens - both hardcover and paperback - meant to entertain and elucidate.

FABULOUS BOOK LISTS AND RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES AND KIDS
Our children's books specialists have compiled a wonderful list of children books for various ages and interests. The lists were organized for teachers and others educators, but they serve as great resources for families as well. And as new titles are bering published, the lists are being regularly updated and refreshed. The list of New and Noteworthy Books is part of the For Families and Educators tab at the top of our home page. All the book covers have live links that take you a page with full descriptions and an online order option.
Also, be sure to check out the Resources page for Families & Educators. While we've been Sheltering In Place, some of our favorite authors and celebrities have been recording themselves at home reading their best-loved children's books. The Resources page has some of our top picks.
