Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Here is what’s new and newsworthy in children’s literature and public libraries.

  1. Why are there so many children’s books about anxiety?
  2. Goosebumps is 30! R.L. Stine reflects on the series and spending three decades scaring kids.
  3. Kwame Alexander is hosting a new reality show to find America’s Next Great Author.
  4. It’s been long said that reading improves empathy. But what does the science actually say?
  5. Children’s nonfiction has an image problem.

And that’s all for this month’s Five on Friday! I hope you all enjoyed checking out what’s new in the kidlit world. Be sure to check back in September for the next Five on Friday, and have a wonderful weekend!
