 We'll be talking about the wacky and hilarious  " Adventures of Captain Underpants" (book #1) by Dav Pilkey.

When we meet in May, we can make our own "flip book", similar to the one in the book (see bottom edges of pages). We'll try out some silly names!  See the silly inflatable Captain Underpants! We'll find out the funny story behind why the author calls himself "Dav" instead of "Dave"!

The book the kids picked for the next book club will be announced!

We chat about the book, and usually play a game. Snacks provided.  Copies available from the Children's room staff.  The club meets one Tuesday afternoon a month at 3:45. We meet in the larger Program room, just beyond the puzzle and stained glass windows of the Children's Room.
