Gread Reads for Kids Booklists
If you know a kid who loves to read graphic novels, funny books or tales of dragons and magic, then they'll love these three, new, fold-out booklists, designed just for them!

To complement the Great Reads for Kids Family Resource, these lists feature recent titles for kids ages 6 - 12 recommended by Toronto Public Library's children's staff, including Graphic Reads, Funny Reads and Fantasy Reads. There's even space for kids to list their personal great reads to share with their friends, family and library staff. The Fantasy Reads booklist is arriving in branches later this week, and you can pick up a free copy of each at any branch while supplies last.

We may be adding further editions, so let us know what kind of books your child would like to read more of... maybe adventure? Historical Fiction? Sports? Science Fiction?

In the meantime, here are a few of my favourite titles from each of the lists that are sure to be hits in your household:

Graphic Reads

Awesome graphic novels, manga, and non-fiction!

Jedi Academy  A Wrinkle in Time - The Graphic Novel  Angelic Layer Book 1
Tower of Treasure  El Deafo  Odd Duck

Funny Reads

Fun and funny books that will have you laughing out loud!

Alvin Ho  The Princess and the Pony  What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig
Speechless  Doctor Proctors Fart Powder   Belly Laugh Knock Knock Jokes for Kids

Fantasy Reads

Mythical beasts, special powers, and magic awaits!

There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight  Hamster Princess of Mice and Magic  Curse of the Dream Witch
The Jumbies  So You Want to be a Wizard  A Field Guide to Griffins Unicorns and Other Mythical Beasts

Thanks to our partner, Kumon Math and Reading Centres, for making this initiative possible.
