Barnes & Noble continues its storied tradition of making books and reading more accessible to kids with its newest addition to the Children’s section: both in-store and online, Barnes & Noble now features an array of titles as recommended by #1 bestselling author James Patterson and his website dedicated to making kids readers for life, ReadKiddoRead.com.

ReadKiddoRead.com was born out of Patterson’s lifelong passion for getting people excited about reading, and his firm belief that the very best way to get kids reading is to give them books they’re going to love. ReadKiddoRead.com – an easy to use, thoughtful and thorough compendium of such titles – selects its books for review based on the book’s sheer ability to inspire interest, passion, and a desire to keep going back for more.

Of the 300 children’s book titles reviewed on ReadKiddoRead.com, twenty-one have been singled out by Barnes & Noble, including such titles as The Homework Machine by Dan Gutman, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, and Holes by Louis Sachar. The bookshelf feature is will run in select stores through the first week of November, and exists online at BarnesandNoble.com.

James Patterson said, “I’m passionate about helping parents, teachers, librarians and adults everywhere find vital ‘first impression’ books for kids, and igniting a lifelong reading habit and it’s very evident that Barnes and Noble is too.”
