Grades 3 & 4: Join us for our monthly book club!  Read the book, then come discuss it with your peers in a group lead by one of our librarians. Copies of the book will be available at the children's circulation desk prior to the book club.  This month, we will be reading "Alvin Ho: Allergic to girls, school, and other scary things" by Lenore Look.

From Book: "Here are some things you should know about Alvin Ho.  1. He is afraid of everything.  Trains, bridges, substitute teachers, girls, school.  Everything.  2.  He is from Concord, Massachusetts, which is hard to spell.  3.  He loves Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and all the superheroes of the world.  In fact, he is a superhero himself - Firecracker Man!  4.  He is trying very hard to be a gentleman, like his dad, but there are a lot of rules and they are hard to remember.  5.  He can talk at home and on the school bus, but never, ever at school.  It is just too scary.  (See #1.)

If there were no school, my troubles would blast away, just like that.  I would dig holes all day.  I would play catch with my gunggung.  I would watch cooking shows.  I would keep an eye on things.  It would be fantastic!

 

SINCE THE LAST PROGRAM WAS CANCELLED, WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING "YEAR OF THE DOG" AT THIS TIME - READ ONE, OR BOTH!

Registration is required for this event and is limited to 15 participants. If you would like to sign up more than one child, please fill out separate registration forms.  Please be prepared to discuss the book.
