With the American Library Association (ALA) holding their Annual Midwinter meeting in Seattle, what better time (and place!) for Novel Effect to mix and mingle with librarians, educators, publishers and indie authors! For the second year in a row, we will be attending the conference and are super excited to be at Booth #1204 and welcome folks to our hometown.
In addition to showing off our voice-driven storytelling platform at our booth, we will also be unveiling two new initiatives during the show: Storytime Squad and Storytime Sue.
Here is a list of our recommended titles to read out loud this year! Packed with fun sound effects and lively music from Novel Effect, these popular books are sure to keep your little one engaged for the entire story, whether they are reading themselves or just listening.

My favorite part of the holiday season are the traditions we revisit year after year. Our family crowding around the dinner table to enjoy grandma’s famous mac and cheese recipe, driving around with warm blankets and a thermos of hot chocolate to see the neighborhood lights. This season is all about spending time together and doing things we love with the ones we love.
As you are Fa-La-La-ing your way to…V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N, we thought you might like to ease some of that countdown-to-holiday-break craziness with titles that explore different seasonal cultures and traditions. Good news, there’s a little elfish-luck in your corner, all the titles below are available in the Novel Effect app!
What started as a craving for pumpkin spice has now evolved into a full-on love affair with Fall. The weather, the smells, the flavors – it’s the seasonal equivalent of a giant hug.
