With each title in this blog post you’ll travel further and further back in time. Read on to find reviews, author info, and links to review each title for free on NetGalley!
We are so pleased to share that we have added a new picture book publisher, Soaring Kite Books, to the Lerner Publisher Services roster. Soaring Kite Books are uplifting and diverse children’s books that give a voice and a presence to underrepresented characters. Building off the pillars of diverse representation, family values, self-esteem, and kindness, the vision of Soaring Kite Books is to build a collection of books by diverse authors that parents and readers can trust.

This January, we launched a brand new database of hands-on projects, experiments, crafts, and recipes for makers of varying skill levels! Lerner Maker Lab is our new offering for grades 2-5, with over 500 projects and growing. Each easy-to-follow project guides readers with step-by-step instructions and images. Lerner Maker Lab is perfect for makerspaces, libraries without makerspaces, at-home use, and anywhere kids want to roll their sleeves up and get creative!
