We’ve added several new book series to our children’s fiction over the past weeks. Luciana, by Erin Teagan, is the first book in the series featuring one of American Girl’s newest characters- and Girl of the Year for 2018. The titular character, Luciana, dreams of becoming an astronaut and being the first kid ever to set foot on Mars, but must first overcome the challenges of being a team player here on Earth.
We also have two new books from the Ranger in Time series by Kate Messner. These cute junior novels follow an adventurous golden retriever named Ranger as he travels through time, using his search-and-rescue skills to help people through various historical disasters, such as the Great Earthquake of San Francisco
And for early readers looking to get a start on longer stories, check out Owl Diaries, a charming series of books for young children detailing the adventures of an energetic little owlet, Eva Wingdale. With vibrantly colored pictures along the way, Eva introduces readers to her family, friends, and everyday life… and all the fiascos she gets herself into.
