Picture Books About Monsters

Ms. Laura, one of the librarians here at Eager Free Public Library, LOVES monsters in pretty much any form—craft projects, movies, songs, and books! Since Halloween is coming up, we thought we’d share a list of monstrous (and not too scary) titles that are perfect for storytime and book sharing with young readers.

Pick up one of these titles at your library or put one on hold through RockCat today!

Great Non-Fiction Books for Kids

There are a lot of kids who prefer to read non-fiction over fiction, but for many adults, non-fiction titles may not come to mind quickly when helping your child or student choose a book to read together or on their own. Here are some great non-fiction books for kids that we can recommend!

I have to put a plug in also for the Cooperative Children's Book Center's Bibliographies and Booklists, which include a wealth of non-fiction titles that are also outstanding for kids, with ideas for topics like Food, the Environment, and Science and Scientists, to name just a few!

Fun Beginning Chapter Books

This week's book list comes to us from Imagination Soup. This is a roundup of fun and relatively new beginning chapter books for kids who have graduated from easy readers and are ready to take on chapter books (but not quite ready to jump in to juvenile fiction). These books are fast-paced, with interesting characters, illustrations, and print that is a little bit bigger than your average juvenile novel to make for easier reading. Enjoy!
Remember, you can put any of these books on hold through RockCat, or you can call the library and we can place a hold for you.
