Introducing Great Authors
I am celebrating because students liked their science fiction novels so much, they decided to choose more books in the series or by the same author. Those who read City of Ember, by Jeanne DuPrau, are excited to find out what happens in The People of Sparks. Readers of Virtually Perfect are finding more books by the author, Dan Gutman. And readers of Running Out of Time are eager to read additional books by Margaret Haddix Peterson. I guess one of the best way to encourage reading is to introduce students to great books by authors who have written several books.
