Great New Books to Start the Year

9780439023481_xlg_4 I can't wait for the release of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, author of The Underland Chronicles. I was lucky enough to get an advance reading copy, and I devoured it in under 24 hours. It was impossible to put down.

If you're looking for the inside scoop on the best new books this fall, look no further than Kid Lit Kit's New Review Tuesdays from Hannah Trierweiler.

Read an exclusive excerpt of Patrick Carman's Stargazer, The Land of Elyon Book 4, on Ink Splot 26, your daily source for breaking book news and juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits on all things book related.

You may also want to stop over at Mir Kamin's Kitchen Table, and find out what book Scholastic's first-ever mom-and-kid book review team is reading.

Not sure what books are appropriate for your students? Search Teacher Book Wizard, and find out instantly the grade, Lexile, DRA and Guided Reading levels for any children's book.
