Pencils and markers and books, oh my!


It happened: summer is over and school is back in session (for most of us)!

When I was younger, I always looked at the store displays with a combination of sadness and excitement.  I was sad that games of nighttime hide-and-seek were over but excited to meet a new teacher, new classmates, and to get that new binder with the kitten design on the cover.


Another plus of going back to school? The school library, and the new books I’d convince my mom that I needed for class.

Do the kids in your life need a new book or two for the new school year? Check out our school-themed titles!


New this fall to bookshelves near you:
