November Book Picks: Fun Reading Suggestions for Kids

Thursday, November 19, 2020
My November book picks are here, and I have plenty of  fun book suggestions for kids this month! Some of these are also featured in my Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide 2020, so be sure to check that out, too! Did you miss last month's book choices? You can still see them here

Disclosure: some of these books were sent to me as samples to review, but that in no way influenced my opinion to post them. I would never recommend something to you if I didn't totally love it myself. Also, this post contains some affiliate links to Amazon. As an Amazon Associate I may earn a (very small) commission from qualifying purchases. You can read more about this on my Disclosure page. That being said, I also love to shop local, so if you know a small business owner who sells books or you can find these titles in a local shop, I encourage you to look there first!

Be sure to Pin this post for later. Good books never get old!
