Top Ten Titles Checked out of HMS Library This Year
Reflections on the Top Ten List
2. Sidekicks and Amulet are graphic novels and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck is a form of chapter book with pictures. These genres are transforming our reluctant readers into avid readers. We need to keep them coming into our school!
3. I have witnessed the power of Wendy Mass and Lisa Graff on our realistic fiction lovers this school year.
4. Girls and boys alike cannot get enough of Because of Mr. Terupt. They can all identify with the differing personalities Mr. Terupt's class.
5. The One and Only Ivan became a Newbery winner for a reason: it is terrific writing.
