Mongols believed individuals were responsible for their spiritual, moral path. Genghis codified this into law (1215), bestowing religious freedom on his empire. Washington, Jefferson and Franklin owned copies of a 17th century Genghis Khan biography. A fascinating, timely read of Genghis Khan’s search for firm rule. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Hooray! Harry Bosch is back – investigating two complex but disparate cases. Retired from the LAPD, Harry’s a private detective, hired by a reclusive millionaire to find a possible heir; he’s also a volunteer investigator at a small, underfunded police department, tracking a terrifying serial rapist. One of Connelly’s very best. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

This delightful early chapter book/ family read-aloud may remind you of Winnie the Pooh. It shares the same benevolent spirit with that beloved classic, as well as a handful of toys and a gentle teddy bear in the lead. Perfect for the very young but advanced reader. ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong
