Don't you hate those click bait "top 5" lists? When it comes to reading, we couldn't resist. We present our top five questions for young readers who can't find that second book to fall in love with.

Heidi Vonmayrhouser is a children's librarian in Milpitas, California. Her system to keep kids reading is to help them fall in love with new books over and over again.

Heidi is one of those investigative librarians. She likes to "dig into the interests" of her readers by asking lots of questions and then finding the perfect next book that fits the reader's interests and passions.

She shares her top 4 queries. And because this is a Top 5 list, we had to include our favorite question on Book Club for Kids.

Top 5 Questions for Readers Looking to Fall in Love with Another Book:

  1. What do you do for fun?

  2. Which books have you read recently?

  3. Is there a book that you couldn't put down?

  4. What book would you read in the summer for fun?

  5. What's your favorite book of all time...and why?
