GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- Remember books, parents? Kids still read them and enjoy them and Jim Morgan and his daughter, Sally of Glen Rock's The Curious Reader still love catering to them.

Morgan said Sally has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of subject kids crave. "Give her the smallest bit of a plot and she usually knows the book," he said. "Parents and grandparents frequently stop in with a variation on the following: 'My son/daughter/grandchild is a reluctant reader. Do you have anything that might interest them?' Invariably Sally will make a recommendation and the next day the parent will be back asking, 'What was in that book? My child will not put it down!'"

That said, here are some of the duo's favorite new books for various age groups:

  • Two Mice by Sergio Ruzzier
  • The Moon is Going to Addy’s House by Ida Pearle
  • The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton
  • Challenger Deep by Neal Schusterman
  • Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley

Want to shop uninterrupted? The store is hosting a “Grown-ups Only Shopping Night” Thursday Dec. 10 and again on Thursday, Dec. 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wine and snacks will be served.

The Curious Reader is at 229 Rock Rd., (201) 444-1918, www.thecuriousreaderbooks.com/ .
