I am going to begin with the Junior Wildcat section. This section houses the K and 1st reading level books to make it easy for those beginning readers to find a "just right book."
No surprise that dogs books, Seuss books and Fly Guy books are on the list. Last year's firsties were crazy about Fly Guy when they were kinders and that love didn't seem to go away just because they were a year older.
Number 10 was a tie between 6 different titles, 4 of which were Fly Guy books
Number 9 was a tie between 2 different titles, and of course Fly Guy was one of those titles
Number 8 was a tie between 2 Fly Guy books
Number 7 was an Elephant & Piggie book, also a favorite series of my kinders and firsties
Number 6 was yet another Fly Guy book
Number 5 was a famous book with a dog
Number 4 was a Dr. Seuss book
Number 3 was yet another Fly Guy book
Taking the number 2 spot was yet another Dr. Seuss classic
And the number 1 Junior Wildcat title checked out for the year
I did note how popular the Fly Guy books were last year and made a point to order more. I am surprised that more Elephant & Piggie books weren't in the top ten, and that Biscuit books didn't even make it to the top ten. I had to order more Elephant & Piggie books last year, too because they were very popular, as were Biscuit books. I didn't receive those books until half way through the school year, so that could account for the lower check outs.
