Reading is one of the essential building blocks for our children’s lives. We at Mom to Bed by 8 are firm believers in reading every night before bed and at the request of our children at will. In fact you can find more than 200 titles on my daughters bookcases and that number is growing every year. This holiday season will will be add three new fun titles to our collection, LEGO NINJAGO® #1: The Challenge of Samurkai!, The Smurfs #8: The Smurf Apprentice and Garfield & Co #4: Caroling Capers.
Papercutz, the premier publisher of great graphic novels for kids including BIONICLE® and DISNEY FAIRIES, has debuted three books featuring characters that top every kids wish list this year: Cole, Zane, Jane, Kai and Sensei Wu from LEGO Ninjago®; the lovable curmudgeon tabby Garfield and the Smurfs! Full color, budget friendly and sized to slip into stockings, these books are perfect for even the most reluctant of readers.
LEGO Ninjago® is this season’s hottest toy and kids will not be able to put down the first book based upon the toys — LEGO NINJAGO® #1: The Challenge of Samurkai!

Thanks to the wildly successful major motion picture this past summer, Smurfs are once again Smurf-tastic! A little known fact is that, before the hit 80’s animated TV series and the popular Smurf figurines, Smurfs originally appeared in comics. Papercutz is proud to continue publishing the original Smurfs comics by Peyto with the debut of their latest installment: The Smurfs #8: The Smurf Apprentice ($5.99).
