Recently Added Pages
To find a book for a child, search for a book (s)he has already read and enjoyed. Then click on Topics that indicate what was enjoyable for that child. For instance, if (s)he liked Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, on that page there are several Topics and Themes. Perhaps what (s)he liked best was the part about Learning Magic. Click on that topic to find other books with that theme. You can also combine several topics in the Search box -- for instance, Learning Magic and Boarding school. You can also scroll down to the Relateds section to see some similar books and other media. The more Topics and Relateds we add to each book, and the more books we add to the Wiki, the more refined the recommendations can be.
