I love to see what books are also popular here at our school library and sometimes I see one I don't have yet and really need to order. So, I thought I'd run some reports and see what's a hit halfway through the year here at my school and post it by category: nonfiction, chapter books, picture books, and graphic novels. Here goes!
I love that this book made the list! It's a nonfiction picture book length book in a graphic novel format and my young ones love it.
9. Origami Birds and Butterflies by Lisa Miles
We are in the middle of an origami craze in the library. My free origami paper when you check out an origami book might have something to do with it...
Can't beat the basketball books. No brainer.
The I Spy books remain a perennial favorite. Definitely need to replace a few of our well-loved copies.
6. Lego Harry Potter: Building the Magical World by Elizabeth Dowsett
Although the Harry Potter books themselves are not moving off the shelves much these days, anything LEGO is HUGE!
With the Titans playing about 45 minutes north of us, it's no surprise this book remains in pretty much constant circulation.
Frankly, I'm surprised this one isn't in the #1 slot! These books are never on the shelf, and the hold list for all the Minecraft titles is a mile long.
Ahh Ripley's...the reluctant reader's best friend. I love it when a group is gathered around a table during checkout time and says, "Mrs. Counts! You've gotta come see this!" Books like these really highlight the communal side of reading and of sharing our reading experiences with others.
There you are again, Minecraft!
Snakes in nose = genius.
