Ms. Suzy Reads | What Real Kids Are Reading

We librarians like to think we know everything about books. It's true we know a lot. And we know some of the best books ever published! 

But sometimes it's a good idea to get out there and ask real kids what their favorites are.

So I did just that. And I got some great recommendations. If you haven't read these, you really should. If you click on the title of any book, you'll be taken to the SSJCPL catalog so you can find where the book is available right now! If a particular book is not available at the library branch closest to you, remember you can place a hold on it and the book will be delivered to your library branch!

So real kids' favorite books. Here goes. 

Destiny recommends We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen because it's a mix of funny and scary. Be prepared to get moving when you read this one!

Dr. Seuss makes the favorite list with 2 titles! 

Irene likes the message in Green Eggs and Ham: even if you think you won't like something, it's always worth a try! 

And Iris recommends The Lorax because it's funny (and what a great message it conveys as well). 

Yasriyah recommends a series of books that her brother recommended to her a long time ago (when she was much younger): the Arthur books by Marc Brown. Good recommendation there, big brother!

And finally, my buddy Xavier recommends the Super Diaper Baby series by Dav Pilkey because the baby flies (oh my!) and catches criminals. My new favorite superhero, for sure.

So there you have it: great books recommended by real kids. And thank you, my Book Buddy friends, for sharing your love of books and reading with the rest of us!

Happy Reading! 

P.S. A quick glance over the list -- specifically Destiny's recommendation at the beginning -- reminds me to remind you that our last session of Move, Play, and Grow will be held today at the Chavez Library! The program is a fun-filled and educational afternoon where kids in 4th-6th grades learn about nutrition, exercise, and how to live healthy lives! And even if you're not between the grades of 4th and 6th grade, come on down anyway: you're more than welcome!
