It’s I LOVE TO READ MONTH and I know that many schools are promoting reading and holding read-a-thons this month. One great benefit of having the library in our community is the wide variety of materials that are available. Adults don’t all like to read the same books, and neither do children. During I LOVE TO READ MONTH, and always, we encourage adults and children alike to browse the library shelves for something that will fill their unique interests and tastes.
One new non-fiction series that has caught on with boys is Dirt Bike World. There are 4 titles in this set: Enduro Racing, Motocross Racing, Freestyle Motocross, and Supercross. All of the books in the series are laid out in a similar format that includes: the track and gear (including safety precautions), pro racing, the stars of the circuit, a glossary and internet sites. Photos are colourful and dramatic and the reading level is easy, but the interest level is high.
Whether it’s dirt bikes, princesses, dinosaurs, or history - fiction, or non-fiction - the library has something for everyone.
