Top Ten Circulating Books of 2017-2018

It's always interesting to look at which books captured readers' interests. 

Below are the top ten titles in various categories. 

It's not surprising that graphic novels took the top three spots in overall circulation and hold five spots within the top ten.

I can see the impact of reading Sharon Creech's Love That Dog during Poetry Month.

 Top 10 Fiction Novels

It's either that BJ Novak has solidly captured my students' funny bone three years running or it's his very cool status as alum, or maybe it's both, but The Book With No Pictures continues to snag the top spot.

Mo Willems seemingly has the lock on the early reader neighborhood, but, wait, look, James Burke has grabbed the number five spot! Go Bird and Squirrel!

 Top 10 Biographies

This list look eerily familiar to last year's list. Lunch Lady is a perennial favorite in our school library. There was an extra bonus this year, Jarrett visited with our third and fourth graders. Holding strong is Roller Girl, which has stayed at number two for the last two years. Owly and Sidekicks have also held strong.
