Happy New Year! Welcome to the January and February issue of Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Reviews. I have put together a wonderful collection of reviews for you for this issue, and I hope you enjoy reading the reviews as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Music and Musicians: For this issue's special feature, I look at books about music and musicians for readers of all ages. Here readers will find picture books, novels and nonfiction titles that explore the world of music and that help us to appreciate what it means to be a musician.
Winter Days and Snowy Days - With short days and long nights, this is a time of year when it is pleasant to curl up in a cozy spot to read a good book. Even if you don’t get snow where you live, you can enjoy some wonderful snowy adventures as you dip into the snowy days books. There are books in these features for readers of all ages. Enjoy!
Every month TTLG chooses a series to spotlight. The series can be from any genre, and it may be complete or a project that is ongoing. This month: The Lockwood and Co. Books. These are young adult novels full of adventure and ghostly entities.
