Today is the start of Amazon’s 12 Days of Christmas sale. (I have to note that the 12 days of Christmas is a Christian holiday seasons that starts at Christmas Day and goes to Epiphany. So it always annoys me when stores or others appropriate names for things and then use them incorrectly.)
But Today is Children’s Toys and Games and Books.
There are 57 Kindle books in today’s Kindle Sale. Including most of the Rick Riordian books. I am a big fan of these books. The two most recent series have the first books in on sale for $2.99, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard (Very positive review) and The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle (which I have not read yet.) But almost all of the rest of Riordian’s children’s books are also on sale.
Other sale books include:
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai ($1.99) which is a Newberry Honor book and a National Book Award winner. It tells the author’s story of fleeing Vietnam after the fall of Saigon and immigrating to Alabama. And it is all in verse.
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia ($1.99) is another book that has won or been a finalist for a number of awards. Three girls travel from Brooklyn to California in 1968 to find a mother who abandoned them 7 years earlier. The acclaim that One Crazy Summer received was the impetus of the #ReadDiverseBooks movement.
Also if you are more interested in print books for your kids (or yourself) Amazon has a $5 off any $15 or more print book purchase until tomorrow. You have to use the promo code GIFTBOOK in the checkout to get the discount.
