Summer Reading 2020 is here! We are going to “Imagine Your Story” this year. So, find your imagination, sprinkle magic dust, and you will find… Dragons! Madison Library District is open. Come on in and check out some of these books when you sign up for Summer Reading.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:


A text-rich environment for preschoolers lays the groundwork for reading success. It’s not just about having books in the home, although that’s a great start. You can also start talking about letters, numbers, and words on packages and signs.


The letter-sound connection is one of the first steps to reading. Play a guessing game about your child’s favorite words. What letter does “p-p-p-pirate” start with? How about “M-m-mommy”? Once your child guesses one correctly, see how many words you can come up with together that start with the same letter.

The second dragon had strong magic powers.

The third dragon flew wildly through the air.
The fourth dragon lived in a jewel-filled lair.

The fifth dragon liked to blow pretty bubbles.
The sixth dragon rescued people in trouble.

In a land filled with magic where in your dreams you can go.

“Dragonwatch” by Brandon Mull

“Dragonwatch” by Brandon Mull

“Dragonwatch” by Brandon Mull

Dragonwatch picks up where Fablehaven left off. It’s been a few months since the final big battle with the demons, and things are mostly back to normal. If living on a sanctuary full of mystical beings is normal.

Seth is still his usual self – annoying whiny teen boy who thinks he is invincible and doesn’t ever think through the consequences of his actions. Kendra is still a unicorn love-struck teen girl, though her head is still mostly on straight and she makes choices based mostly on logic. But when they are chosen as the new co-caretakers for Wyrmroost, life becomes a bit more interesting.

Through all the adventures and magical creatures, this book is the story of taking chances and saving the world, one dragon sanctuary at a time. Hopefully future volumes continue on in the same thread. Previous fans of Fablehaven will not be disappointed, and it looks like there are some new characters who will soon be having their own magical adventures.
