How does a child choose?

We've been trying to draw out a flowchart that shows how children make decisions while choosing a book. One of the benefits of our system is that many books on a topic can be shelved together, even if they are fiction and non-fiction. A child can search for an interesting topic (trucks! dogs! machines!) and then find facts and stories all there on the shelf to choose from. I think it makes for a richer reading experience, more choices, and supports teachers who are looking for literature connections.

Our young students are taking a different path to choosing a book. 

What are your pathways through the library? Are there too many hurdles? Share on our discussion board at metisinnovations.com.
