Kids Books We're Anticipating: Pre-Order Now!

Return to Previous Page

Keep it local and pre-order from your local independent bookstore!

Why do pre-orders matter? Publishers prioritize a book's first week sales. Placing a pre-order for your favorite authors and anticipated reads ensures sales will be counted on the publication date and be more likely to end up on bestseller lists. Plus, you get to support an indie bookstore in the process. 

You can pre-order any book from us, but this is just a small sampling of our favorites!
