Finding book with characters we know and love...
There are many ways to select books we love to read. One way is to find a book character we really like and to read many books about that characters adventures. We can check out and borrow lots of these books during our library time. Book characters are created by authors and illustrators.
We have been learning how books are arranged on the shelf. Books with characters are fiction books. We now know that fiction books are arranged on the shelf in ABC order by the author's last name. If I know the author of my favorite character's books, I can find all the books the library has at that same spot because they will all have the same call number.
Finding new books characters and reading all of their stories and adventures is one way I can find even more books to read. One of our reading goals is to broaden, or to grow, our love for different books. Finding new books characters to read is one way to do this.
