New Kids Best Sellers

Among the titles that have been on the NYT kids best seller lists for weeks and weeks (Gallop! is STILL on after 112 weeks) are some new titles that I’m happy to see  break on to the lists.

The EARTH Book
Todd Parr
Retail Price: $9.99
Hardcover: 40 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers – (2010-03-17)
ISBN / EAN: 031604265X / 9780316042659

Todd Parr’s new book debuts on the Picture Books list this week. He’s a genius when speaking to the young child. His bright colors and direct language can be jarring to grown-ups but trust me, kids just want to grab on and not let go. Best Earth Day advice – put your underwear in the freezer to cool off instead of air conditioning.

The Time Pirate: A Nick McIver Time Adventure
Ted Bell
Retail Price: $17.99
Hardcover: 464 pages
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin – (2010-04-13)

Macmillan Audio; UNABR; 9781427208828; $29.99

On the Chapter Books list for the second week, now at #6, is the second in the Nick McIver Time Adventure series. I am a sucker  for time/travel tales. This one is a big fat novel for the kids who have graduated from Jack and Annie and the kids waiting for this week’s release of the Red Pyramid.

OverDrive WMA Audiobook

On the Chapter Books list at #8 after three weeks, this is my number one pick for YA this spring. Great deep read that reflects the very real lives of teens. Got kids who are obsessed by Glee? This is for them.
