Description

As children's librarians shared this year's newest books with the children in their local libraries, it became clear that the old adage - the more things change, the more they stay the same - is truer than ever. From Xboxes to iPads, from Wii consoles to the hottest apps, technology ages in a blink of an eye, but the timelessness of a good tale will always engage even the most tech-savvy child. Here are some of the best early chapter books of the 2011 year. Enjoy them with your families.
