At the public library, the best part of being a librarian is getting to see the new books before anyone else! Now that I’m in charge of Bookboard’s collection, I get to see all the new digital books as they come in from our publishers. It’s my job to process them and make them ready for reading — I have the coolest job in the world!

Here’s our latest collection of new books, on a brand-new "shelf" that the Bookboard team put together so we can showcase sets of books more easily (<a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_c7314339366a293309b/index.html">click to preview</a>).

<iframe style="margin-left: 15px;" src="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_c7314339366a293309b/index.html?embed=true" width="620" height="440"></iframe><!–more–>

On this "shelf," we have a variety of books; fiction, nonfiction, picture books, and beginning readers. Some of these, like the Smithsonian books, are among the most popular in print form in public libraries. My son has physical copies of some of these books and he loves the digital version as well.

In fact, try this as an experiment the next time you read — get the physical copy (the Berenstain Bears and Smithsonian books are available physically in most public libraries) and the Bookboard version, and see how your child reacts. Does it feel like the same book? I’d love to hear your insight!

These books contain all sorts of goodies:
<ul>
<li>Narrative-based non-fiction books from Smithsonian that read well either as one-on-one storytime, or as part of a group storytime for kids preschool age or older.</li>
<li>A few amusing prehistoric offerings that lend themselves well to re-reading.</li>
<li>Pinch and Dash with their juxtaposed personalities (in a similar manner as <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frog_and_Toad">Frog and Toad</a> and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Marshall_(author)">George and Martha</a>) and the situations they find themselves in.</li>
<li>Two very different types of princesses; one (barely) human and one feline.</li>
<li>Singable books for our youngest patrons</li>
<li>And a few more Berenstain Bear books.</li>
</ul>
