Series books for young readers are alive and well. Authors and publishers continue to add books to favorite series, as well as, creating new ones. With so many series out there, some good reads are often overlooked.
Each month, an established series will be displayed in the children’s room with the hope that readers might discover a new author or series that will be of interest to them.
This month’s featured series is the Copernicus Legacy. Written by Tony Abbott, this four-book series, “Crown of Fire” was published in late 2016, deals with four friends whose adventures take them across the globe.
