With school back in and Holidays nearing, finding new books is a constant. We may need books for reading homework, class reading, gift ideas and at home bedtime routines. There are so many new titles daily and I found 5 Must Have Books for Kids Ages 5-8.
The Boring Book
The Boring Book features one particularly bored boy as he discovers, there’s actually more to boredom than meets the eye—more questions, more theories, and heaps of humor. It is playfully—and hilariously—unpacks the ways in which a seemingly stagnant state is actually a portal into a dynamic, life-enriching experience.
Grown-Ups Never Do That
Grown-Ups Never Do That is as unbelievable as it may seem, but sometimes even grown-ups misbehave! It’s a rollicking tale, showcasing the humor—and the humanity—of the most important people in kids’ lives.
Get Up, Stand Up (Bob Marley)
Get Up, Stand up is an adaptation of one of Bob Marley’s beloved songs and has a timely message for children: To counter injustice, lift others up with kindness and courage. As a young girl goes on with her day in school, she comes across several instances of teasing and intimidation. But with loving action and some help from her friends, she’s able to make things right for herself and others.
Caspian Finds a Friend
Caspian lives in a lighthouse surrounded by a cold gray-blue sea—every day, he watches, wishing for a friend, but no one comes. So, Caspian decides that wishing is not enough. What follows is a friendship story between a boy and a bear that is tender, warm, and perfect for gift-giving.
