Features of NoveList K-8 Plus

NoveList K-8 Plus is a database of book recommendations for all library workers who do readers' advisory. Our expertise and passion for books and reading means you'll always be able to provide the best help to the youngest readers in your community. 

Unique story elements

NoveList’s unique story elements like appeal, genre, and theme help you understand what about a book your readers love, and help them find more that are just their style.

Read-alike recommendations specifically for younger readers

Our recommendations are crafted by experts in children’s literature, and we let you know who wrote a recommendation and why the recommendation makes sense. We offer recommendations for titles, authors, and series.

“As a school librarian, I need to create lists of books to order, teach various genres, and meet teacher requests for thematic and curricular units. I love that I can go to NoveList and create these lists … it makes me look like a Library Goddess.”

— Debbie B., Media Coordinator, North Carolina
