Popsicle Book Group: Grades 1-3

Books, games, crafts, snacks, and friends! Children in grades 1- 3 are invited to read a book before we meet (it's okay if you don't finish). Once we are together, we will play games, make a craft, and eat a snack all related to the book! Registration is required, and will open January 3.

This month's book: Space Taxi- Archie Takes Flight- Archie Morningstar learns a big family secret and helps save the universe. All before breakfast!

It's not every day a regular kid like Archie gets to wake up at midnight. But today is Take Your Kid to Work Day, and Archie is finally allowed to ride along in his dad's taxi cab. He has been waiting eight years, eight months, and eight days for this moment to arrive. But he's about to discover his dad is no ordinary cab driver...In fact, he drives an intergalactic space taxi! All night long, he shuttles aliens from one corner of the universe to another. And being a space taxi copilot is no easy task: Archie must steer them into wormholes, keep them from crashing into planets, deal with a very unusual cat...and save the universe from an evil mastermind!
