Hooked on Books

Are you an intermediate reader? Do you like to have fun? Are you “hooked on books?” Then our monthly after-school book club is for you! Each month we will learn about a different genre or format.  This month, it's non-fiction, featuring the You Wouldn't Want to... series. Read one of our selected titles, then join us for a book talk, snack and fun activity. (Recommended for intermediate readers)

Copies of this month's selection are available at the Children's circulation desk. Registration is required.

This month's genre/format: Non-fiction

What would your life be like if you had to do without all the modern inventions you take for granted? How would you cope without a toilet? Could you get by without electricity? If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you still be alive today? Starting from these thought-provoking questions, each title in the fantastic new You Wouldn’t Want to... series takes us on a historical journey. We learn how people really did cope in the past, and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant.
