A crush can lead to lust. Librarian Nancy Pearl is probably best known to the general public as the physical model for the Librarian Action Figure, but her real contribution is telling us what to read.
Author of Book Lust and More Book Lust for adults, Pearl has come out with a kids' version, Book Crush: For Kids and Teens - Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment and Interest. Divided into sections for easy, middle grades and young adults, Book Crush recommends all kinds of books for all kinds of kids.
There's also a companion journal for devoted readers who want to record their thoughts and feelings about the books they've read along with answering fun questions like the character they'd most want for a friend, author they'd most want to meet, their current book crush, etc.
Look for Book Crush and the Book Crush Journal at your local bookstore or find them at Amazon where you can purchase both books together for $22.
