The Library has purchased a Collection of ReadAlong Packs for JF Readers (~Grades 2-6). ReadAlong Packs at Allerton Public Library DistrictThese are geared for Reluctant or Slower Elementary School Readers. They cannot be placed on Hold nor will they be shared with outside libraries, so there will always (hopefully) be some on the shelf in Juvenile Fiction, by the Holiday and Juvenile Graphic Novels. Each ReadAlong Pack includes an audiobook set and the corresponding published book, so the kids can follow along in the book with the audio. There are ~20 on the shelf now and we'll be adding 20 more this next month, plus a new title each month after that. Many of these are popular titles such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid & Dork Diaries series titles, but we've also purchased some award winners such as The One and Only Ivan.
