Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.
These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."
We like ideas.
We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.
But we also just like reading kids' books.
So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us! September's book is The freedom maze by Delia Sherman
October: Me and Earl and the dying girl, Jesse Andrews November: River and the Rock, Kekla Magoon
