Kids Book Clubs

Book Clubs meet on Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m. Come join us after school for an hour of interesting book talk and snacks! 


  • The second meeting of the Grades 1-2 Book Club will be held on Wednesday, October 4 at 3:00 p.m. We will be discussing A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech.

"When a principal loves his school so much that he wants the children to attend classes every day of the year, it's up to his students to show him free time is a good thing, too."

 

  • The next meeting of the Grades 3-4 Book Club will be held on Wednesday, October 11 at 3:00 p.m. We will be discussing Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

"Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student."

 

  • The next meeting of the Grades 5-6 Book Club will be held on Wednesday, October 18 at 3:00 p.m. We will be discussing The Candymakers by Wendy Mass.

    "When four twelve-year-olds, including Logan, who has grown up never leaving his parents' Life Is Sweet candy factory, compete in the Confectionary Association's annual contest, they unexpectedly become friends and uncover secrets about themselves during the process."

 

  • The first meeting of the Grades 7 and Up Book Club will be held on Wednesday, September 27 at 3:00 p.m. We will be discussing City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau.

    "In the year 241, twelve-year-old Lina trades jobs on Assignment Day to be a Messenger to run to new places in her decaying but beloved city, perhaps even to glimpse Unknown Regions."

 

We discuss the book for roughly 45 minutes, while Miss Lisa blogs our conversation, and spend the last 15 minutes voting on a book to read for the next book club.
 
Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. Please be sure to register so that Miss Lisa knows how many snacks to buy!
