If You Like Guardians of Ga'Hoole ...

This semester, my students are sharing book reviews in a different format, linking one book they thought many people in the class might have read and another that would appeal to a reader of the first book. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.)

This "If you like ... read this next ..." format was inspired by the We Need Diverse Books summer reading series. They used the format to encourage people to find and read diverse books, so all of their "read this next" choices highlight great, diverse book choices. You can find their posts here on their Tumblr page.

If you like Guardians of Ga'Hoole, you should read The Land of Stories books.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole is a story about an owl named Soren and his gang of owls. This book is built off an owl legend of the great Ga'Hoole tree [or well they thought was a legend].

Guardians of Ga'Hoole is very similar to Land of Stories by Chris Colfer which is a book series with about 11 less books (which tells you that there's a lot of Guardians of Ga'Hoole books). As for the Land of Stories book series well, I got a video for that, please watch it!

I hope you enjoy! This is a link to the trailer for Land of Stories.

If you like Guardians of Ga'Hoole, read Wolves of the Beyond next. Both series are about after the humans are extinct and Animals can talk. There are 15 books in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole and 6 in the Wolves of the Beyond series. Both series are by Kathryn Lasky.

Wolves of the Beyond:

I recommend these to people who like books that are not humorous but are serious.
