There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.

About Mastress Alita

I'm a fulltime librarian, a chronic migraineur, a tea addict, and an avid Simmer that writes SimLit and maintains the Stories and Legacies Index, a link directory of SimLit on Wordpress. Though I obviously love cats, I actually don't own one! (Blame my apartment lease for that!) I do have a charming old cockatiel, Kali, that has been my companion for the last seventeen years!

    So true! At my daughter’s charter school, I was one of the many volunteers who helped get the library going. We sorted and sifted through donations, catalogued books, covered spines with library tape… whatever was needed. We set up and then moved it multiple times until a permanent space was made available (a log cabin that had been carefully moved from its original property and rebuilt upon the school campus). Later on, I added one more hat when I coordinated their Book Fair for several years. This quote is similar to my way of thinking. I wouldn’t guide a child to a book. I would ask them to tell me what they liked and we would find a book together and then sit down on the rug and read :) More often than not, that book would be in their arm as they headed out the door.

    • That is one of the most important parts of doing reader’s advisory. An unskilled teacher or librarian might just turn straight to whatever is popular or a bestseller, the books “a lot of people like” instead of really zoning in on a particular patron’s needs. But once you find one book or series a person loves and get hooked on, then they’ll next time they’ll want something similar, and it becomes easier to find more books with common themes or styles now that you have one solid series they love to go off of. Watching a patron really fall in love with a book is one of the greatest joys of being a librarian! ^_^ And I don’t know how many times I was introduced to new books and series by patrons bringing books that looked interesting to my attention that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise!
