Youth Services Librarians and Library Associates


“I’ve read all the Wimpy Kid books. What do you have like that?”

“I want something like The Lightning Thief.” 

“Has Stephanie Meyer written anything new?”

All Youth Services providers face these question (or similar ones) all the time! Our bookshelves groan under the weight of graphic novel hybrids and vampire sagas. But how do we know what books will satisfy the children and young adults who only want something just like their favorite book?  Join us as we explore the best read-alikes for the most popular titles and series.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify the literary elements that are most popular with young readers.
  • Understand how to “sell” a book to a child or young adult.
  • Develop short, targeted booklists that will make reader’s advisory easy and fun!
