Passive Program for May: Fortune Teller Reader’s Advisory

Leave a comment

In April, I set out another “Book in a Jar” for teens to guess. It was a LOT harder than the first, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Jar, but three teens still guessed the correct book.  Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

I wanted to do something different for May, and also more interactive. I went hunting around Pinterest and found this blog and love her fortune teller reader’s advisory idea, so I stole it!


The best part is I can use this in both the teen and juvenile sections.

There were supplies and instructions for making a fortune teller on the Children’s Desk. A few kids did and I saw people using the fortune tellers in the stacks-hooray!

Planning to re-use in the fall sometime.
