New Children's Books for the New School Term

We have reached the end of the summer vacation; as the White Rain Book House family, we present the most recent and fun books for our children's enjoyment, in order to restore, if only slightly, the morale of the children and increase their motivation in the process of acclimating to the return to school. We wish everyone a happy reading season as the most beautiful school season begins.
