#3. If You Like Harry Potter
by Barbara J. Feldman
If You Like Harry Potter Printable (** for premium members only)
J.K. Rowling’s best selling Harry Potter books worked their magic on millions of kids by turning them on to reading. Hundreds of teachers and librarians from around the world, eager to encourage this exciting trend, have created online reading lists for readers waiting for the next HP book. These sites are the best of the lot.
Arapahoe Libraries: If You Like Harry Potter
The Arapahoe Library District (of Englewood, Colorado) recommends fifteen fantasy books for young teens. Even if you don’ have an Arapahoe library card, clicking on “Reserve this Book” button will allow you to research additional books by the same author, or in the same genre. Other worthwhile clicks are the Teen Email Newsletter (with book and movie reviews) and Homework Help (with both live help and links to other homework helper sites.)
Book Hive: Fantasy for 4th to 6th Grades
The biggest list of the day is found at BookHive, with 102 book reviews in the Fantasy category for intermediate readers (fourth through sixth grade.) I like this site because you add your own comments about any book, and the book reviews are more substantial than those at the other sites. BookHive is published by the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, and the “Request from Library” link only applies to local library cardholders.
Boston Public Library: If You Like Harry Potter
Vicky Morgan, a children’s librarian from Boston, Massachusetts, lists fourteen individual books, and fourteen book series, such as “Redwall” by Brian Jacques, and “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis. But Boston Public Library doesn’t only cater to Harry Potter fans. Click on Booklist for Kids for forty-seven more reading lists. From “All Aboard: Picture Books about Trains” to “Turtle Island Tales: Native American Folktales, Myths, and Legends,” there is something here for every age group and nearly every interest.
