The end of Summer Reading Club 2014 is fast approaching, August 2nd to be exact. Here in the youth department we spend a great deal of our time helping young readers find the next great book. Because as we all know, finding the right book makes all the difference. In the summer I like to recommend funny and entertaining series that make you want to keep reading and give you the opportunity to stay with characters you have come to enjoy. Here are some first books in my favorite series for middle-readers. Hopefully, with these titles, you can keep the little ones reading strong through the next two weeks and after!
The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R. A. Spratt
The Popularity Papers: Research for the Social Improvement and General Betterment of Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang by Amy Ignatow
Swindle by Gordon Korman
We Are not Eaten by Yaks (An Accidental Adventure) by C. Alexander London
