Hi Brenda,
How about the Erie Canal Cousins Series. Book 1 is Erie Canal Cousins(2007) and Book2 is Three Weeks in Utica (2008). They are historical fiction. I am the author and there will be 3 more in the series.

Savvy by Ingrid Law came out this summer and is a fun new fantasy read. If you don't mind children's horror, Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book (where he retells The Jungle Book, only the child who escapes his family's murderer is raised by ghosts!) is really good. Oh, and The Order of Odd-fish is a fun, funky book that came out a few months ago. Not sure what genre you're looking for, but my first choice is usually fantasy. The hottest thing in YA is the Twilight books (though the recent 4th book is pretty bizarre); the other hot new series is Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid and sequels (one so far). Alabama Moon by Watt Key has been out a year or two, but I just discovered it and thought it was terrific. That's a smattering for you!

You gotta check out Dirty Chonies by Steve Vasquez if you have a 2nd-5th grade reader. It is a fun and entertaining story right along the lines of The Sandlot. My son loved it and I normally have to twist his arm to get him to read. Lots of laughed and a good underlying lesson.

'Karate Cat' is a childrens storybook with vivid imaginative illustrations. I won't waste too much space talking about it here, just visit the amazon listing, it has everything you need. It is leaps and bounds better than any childrens book I have seen in the past few years. A blog is kept about the book here as well: http://cello-man.blogspot.com.

I recommend the Show and Tell Bible. It is stories from the first five books of the bible, the Books of Moses. It is on DVD, so you can watch it on your TV or computer. It comes with an activity booklet, (I Know My Bible) so kids can watch it, then answer questions and puzzles within the workbook. Kids love it!
Especially in the car... Rather have my kids watching something educational!

Sweet Farts by Raymond Bean is hysterical. My 4th grader laughed until he cried. If you liked Frindle and 4th Grade Nothing, this book is just as funny.

Although, I'm not sure what age group you'd like, I have a new children's fable entitled, Patulous the Different Caterpillar. For children under 6 a parent would need to read the story, for 6 - 7 some assistance may be needed as the book has a rich vocabulary. Ages 8 and older may read and usually can read to a sibling. The story of Patulous seeks to teach children to accept differences in themselves and others. A great way to talk to children about what happens when you feel you don't belong or are excluded from a play group or recess. You can also see a book trailer on youtube to get an idea of the beautiful illustrations - type 'Patulous' in search.

I have to recommend Out of the Nursery by Elizabeth Gauthier, its brand new and very funny. Its a modern spin on nursery rhymes, my daughter loves it and I do to. If you don't have it yet you should take a look at it...I have yet to talk to someone that didn't appreciate its humor plus the illustrations are unique.

I love reading to my Grandchildren the new book Out of the Nursery it is fun and all 7 of them love it. The author is Elizabeth Gauthier and there is some funny twists on the classic nursery rhymes so even I enjoy it.

Dirty Chonies by Steve Vasquez. It had my kids on the ground laughing and tought some very good lessons without making it obvious to the kids. Remember all of those warnings your parents gave you when you were growing up that were pretty rediculous (stop making that face or it will stick). this stpry takes the ball and runs with that. "What if" your underwear came to life because you wouldn't change them. Funny stuff to see what the author came up with.

The most entertaining new books this year for my kids have been the two RAYMOND AND GRAHAM books. (Raymond and Graham Rule the School, Raymond and Graham Dancing Dudes). About a 4th or 5th grade level of chapter books. Very funny!

I've actually written a children's book myself (but only could be found at Borders in PA, Maryland, and New York City). It's called Is Lydia Strange? It's a children's book on Aspergers Syndrome (BTW, I have AS). It's about a girl name Lydia who has trouble on her first day of school.

Hi Sarah, congratulations on your book! If it is appropriate for children under 10, I would be very interested in seeing a copy. I am the author of HEALING STORIES: PICTURE BOOKS FOR THE BIG AND SMALL CHANGES IN A CHILD'S LIFE. HEALING STORIES is a guide for adults to more than 500 picture books that help support children as they face new or challenging experiences. I'm often asked for books about various childhood concerns, and I don't know of any on Asperger's Syndrome. Also, HEALING STORIES has a website where each week, I post a review of a book that I recommend but that is not reviewed in HEALING STORIES (I don't think it would be OK with Amazon if I give the URL, but it is usually not too hard to find). I am in California, so Borders stores in PA, MD, and NYC are not accessible to me. Is there any other way to get a copy? If you would like to email me, you can do that through the HEALING STORIES website.
