3 stories to read before your child goes back to school
The Book Break August lineup includes three books for three different types of readers.
We’re getting ready for back to school, so now is the time to give the kids a new book to read before they get back to school, and something for the parents too!
The first recommendation on the list is a fun and intriguing book that all women (and those who love them) will appreciate.
It’s time to reverse the ‘man and his dog straying in a dystopian world’ trope and tell stories about cats and their wives – their badass wives.
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse wanders shattered worlds with stories of survival, technology, magic, and sheer determination. But – like their cats – the perpetrators have frequently slipped out of an upstairs window or dropped items from counters, and their stories are stronger. In the pages of this book, cats help their wives find a better life, protect, defend and fight for the women who have sheltered and protected them – and vice versa. Because these are not just stories of survival in troubled times, but of relationships between women and their cats, between members of communities large and small, and how they thrive, even in the face of catastrophic losses.
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse – Time to Take Them Seriously!
The following recommendation is for anyone who enjoys thrillers, action or sci-fi books. This series of 5 books features strong women as the main characters.
Throughout this feature, please show the image of the 5 book series, as well as the image of book 1 in the series and the last book 5 in the series.
It’s science fiction but draws inspiration from several genres including action, espionage, political thrillers, and two powerful female characters. The main characters, Kendra and Aiyana Cassidy. Aiyana is the genius who revolutionized transportation and distribution by creating a convenient teleportation network. Kendra is the dreamer determined to push humanity not only in space but also in the stars.
Kendra and Aiyana Cassidy created and led the Federation from the start, but are they capable of the ultimate sacrifice so that their children and their dreams can survive?
No triumph comes without sacrifice, and there is no victory without price. How much is too much?
The final recommendation is ideal for school-aged children 8 years and older. Adults will also enjoy the book. This book is a fantastic and fun adventure. I felt like it was a good mix between Jumanji’s “Beyonders” series and Brandon Mull.
An exciting new adventure from the publisher of Fablehaven, Adventurers wanted, and the Potions Masters!
“Action, humor, friendship and courage. Readers will love this fantastic adventure. –Jennifer Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author
Lucas Silver’s life is about to change. He thinks it’s because he planned to escape from his foster family and go to New York, but then he and his friend Miles and two girls they know ― Jasmine and Vanessa ― find Hob and Bogie’s Curiosity Shoppe and agree to be a part of Champion’s Quest.
When the four children walk through the front door of the Curiosity Shoppe, they immediately discover that they are no longer in West Virginia, but transported into the game and into a fantastical and savage world of dangerous goblins, brutal ogres and darling. ‘a mighty witch.
They must work together as a team, overcome their real weaknesses, and believe in themselves and each other if they are to outwit, outdo, and outlast their enemies in this ultimate quest to defeat a treacherous monster.
