Lots of kids (and parents too!) enjoy getting lost in a book. Finishing it can feel kind of sad. Here’s a tip: Look up a favorite book in the library catalog. Over on the right you’ll see “Lists that include this title.” These lists were created by other readers who like what you like.
Lemony Snicket, who wrote A Series of Unfortunate Events, has a new series: All the Wrong Questions. The first book is Who Could That Be at This Hour? Readers put this book on lists like My 10 Favorite Middle Grades of 2012 and Niles Best of 2012 Novels For Kids. The other titles on these lists give you something to read while you wait for the second book.
How to Seize A Dragon’s Jewel is the most recent book in the series, How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. You can find a hundred and twenty five lists for this series, including: Best Books Of All Time! Must Read! and Adventure and Survival for grades 4 – 7 and Niles Guys Read: Fantasy
Tip #2: You can also choose “lists” instead of “keyword,” “title,” “author,” etc. when you search in the catalog. Enter a favorite title or author in the search box and you’ll see all the lists where it appears.
