Pre-Order the New Harry Potter Book
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II
As I'm sure you've all heard by now, there's going to be a new Harry Potter book! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts 1 & 2 is a new story that takes place nineteen years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The book is the script of a new play -- the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage -- that will premiere in London's West End on July 30th. It's based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter, and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child releases on July 31st, but you can pre-order your copy today!

Shark Week
Gliding through the water at breakneck speeds -- a fin, just skimming the surface of the water. The biggest jaws you've ever seen. These are the iconic images that flash through all our minds when we think of sharks, but there's so much more to know about these majestic predators of the sea. From the unique look of the prehistoric Whorl shark, to the hunting techniques of the Great White, all the thrills and chills of Shark Week are now here for year-round reading. Filled with photos, first-hand accounts of shark attacks, and unbelievable facts (Did you know that there are sharks that live in volcanoes?), this book is for every shark fanatic who wants to get even more up close and personal.

Beach Baby
Beach Baby is the perfect beach book for baby, telling the sweet story of baby's day at the beach -- and it's sand-proof, waterproof, and sunscreen-proof, too. With two million copies in print, Indestructibles are the books built for the way babies read. They are 100 percent baby-proof, chew-proof, rip-proof, and drool-proof. Printed on a unique nontoxic, paperlike material that holds up to anything babies can throw at it -- gumming, spilling, dragging across the floor -- Indestructibles are the little books that could. They're indestructible. And if they get dirty, just throw them in the dishwasher or rinse them in the sink.

Picture Books
There Is a Tribe of Kids
When a young boy embarks on a journey alone...he trails a colony of penguins, undulates in a smack of jellyfish, clasps hands with a constellation of stars, naps for a night in a bed of clams, and follows a trail of shells, home to his tribe of friends. There Is a Tribe of Kids is a meditation on childhood and life's beginning. Smith's vibrant sponge-paint illustrations and use of unusual collective nouns bring the book to life. Whimsical, expressive, and perfectly paced, this story plays with language as much as it embodies imagination.

Middle Grade
From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess
Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison is a completely average twelve-year-old. The only things about her that aren't average are her name, her ability to draw animals, and the fact that she is a half-orphan who has never met her father and is forced to live with her aunt and uncle. Then one completely average day, everything goes wrong: the most popular girl in school, Annabelle Jenkins, threatens to beat her up, the principal gives her a demerit, and she's knocked down at the bus stop... Until a limo containing Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia pulls up to invite her to New York to finally meet her father. Maybe Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison isn't so average after all!

Be Glad Your Dad... (Is Not an Octopus!)
A great, silly read for preschoolers who might wish sometimes -- just sometimes -- that their dad isn't their dad. But as this book so hilariously explains, you should be glad that your dad is your dad after all and not, say, a monkey who would make you eat bugs, or an alligator with big sharp teeth. A must-have for Father's Day!
