We are always anxious to let people know about the amazing books that we carry on the First Book Marketplace (our award-winning online site that makes quality titles available at deep discounts to programs serving children in need). In fact, we just added some new titles that we are even more excited about than usual …
To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee
One of the most powerful and beloved American novels – a story of race, class and conscience in a small southern town in the 1930s. This is the 50th anniversary edition of the book, which won a Pulitzer Prize and was named “Best Novel of the Century,” according to a poll of librarians by Library Journal in 1999.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The best-selling paranormal romance that spawned a legion of vampire novels, along with a movie franchise and a near-total division of humankind into ‘Team Edward’ and ‘Team Jacob’.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Special Edition), by Jeff Kinney
This is a special paperback edition, exclusive to the First Book Marketplace, of the first book in this popular illustrated series about a kid trying to get by in a world full of other kids who are, alas, bigger and meaner.
Check out these and other great titles on the First Book Marketplace, and if you know of a classroom or program whose kids should be reading about vampires, wimps or Atticus Finch, send them our way.
