What to Look Out For in April

What's coming up in April

We’re rounding up just a few of the things you can look out for from us this month in children’s books, education, Scholastic Book Clubs and more.

New books coming out this April

April is a brilliant month for your bookshelf! You can now get your hands on the debut children’s book from Diversity’s Ashley and Jordan Banjo, Fly High Crew: The Green Glow, a laugh-out-loud, high-energy story featuring adults taken over by aliens and a brave group of kids who must work together to stop them! In his new book, Silence Is Not An Option, Stuart Lawrence talks about what he has learned from life – the tools that have helped him live positively and kept him moving forwards when times have been tough. Plus, don’t miss the new book from award-winning author Vashti Hardy, Harley Hitch and the Iron Forest, a highly illustrated adventure about a determined young inventor!

And that’s just a small selection of the fantastic books you can add to your shelves this month! Visit the Scholastic Children’s Books website to take a look at what’s new.
