If you have a favorite author or series but have read everything you can get your hands on by the author/in the series, we've got the resource for you! The Schlow Children's Library staff have carefully selected read-a-likes for all your favorite series, authors and genres. Check out this unique resource online here or in the library!
Below are summaries of a selection of the read-a-likes we have created, and to the left are attached files with the suggested read-a-likes for these topics/books/series (click "more info" to access these resources). For all the read-a-likes, come to the Children's Department and ask for the Read-a-Likes binder. We'd love for suggestions for any books we can add to our read-a-like lists!
