In an ever-changing world where we’re often overwhelmed by frightening news stories, it can be easy to feel alone and scared. One antidote to that fear and isolation is community. Many of the titles in this issue of Series Made Simple center themes of global community. These selections offer readers a clearer understanding of our often-scary world, with topics ranging from climate change, politics, and news to chronic illnesses, anxiety, and mindfulness. They also remind them of the impact they can have on it. Our 11 expert reviewers have curated lists of informational titles sure to entice readers of all ages. Delve deeper into familiar subjects (“Animals,” “Biography,” and “Sports”) or explore topics currently impacting readers’ worlds (“Social Justice” and “Technology”). As this fall’s releases include a plethora of decodable and phonics titles, “Early Readers” and “Hi-Lo” have their own sections in this edition. Series in each section have been handpicked by your colleagues to help you make the best selections for your nonfiction collection this season.

So, venture forth and remember—a good book can make a difference.
