Book Suggestions by Kids!

Over the summer, we visited with many children.  Lots of them came in to record the minutes they read for the Summer Reading Program (yes, teachers some children actually did practice reading over the summer!).  Tons of books were checked out (rarely was there a copy of Captain Underpants or Diary of a Wimpy Kid on the shelf!).  Many children also participated in the program entitled Read-2-Gether.  The really cool thing about this program is that children entering Grades 1-3 come in once a week and read with a teen for 30 minutes.  The group focuses on a type of literature through a read-aloud and then they have a scavenger hunt in the library looking for a specific title.  Once the title is found, the teen and child look through it and discuss a little bit of the book with everyone.  We have some of the titles below that these children found.  Can you guess our genre?   Click on the book to hear a snip-it of a few of the titles!
