This April, get ready for an exciting collaboration between Novel Effect and Mackin as we join forces to celebrate Librarian Appreciation Month! After many requests from our shared user base, our companies are partnering to launch the Novel Effect Top 100 list on Mackin.com, showcasing a curated selection of Novel Effect’s most beloved reads.

This list features a diverse range of children’s books, handpicked by Novel Effect’s librarians. You’ll find classics, new releases, and hidden gems, ensuring readers can find the perfect book for any occasion. Librarians can utilize this valuable resource to help them select engaging and age-appropriate titles for their collections, further enriching the literary experience for their patrons.

Mackin and Novel Effect are proud to continue to support librarians everywhere in inspiring young readers to develop a lifelong passion for literature. In celebration of librarians and all that they do, Novel Effect and Mackin are hosting a Read Aloud Challenge in the Novel Effect app. Read any book in the challenge collection April 17-21 for a chance to win a variety of fantastic prizes. The more books you read in the app, the more chances you have to win!

Download the Novel Effect app and start exploring the Novel Effect Top 100 list on Mackin.com (make sure you log in first). Don’t miss out on this opportunity to celebrate the wonderful world of children’s literature and show our gratitude to the dedicated librarians who help make it all possible. Happy reading!
