Tween Reads is back, and the January book selection is The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick. Twelve-year-old Homer, a poor but clever orphan, has extraordinary adventures after running away from his evil uncle to rescue his brother, who has been sold into service in the Civil War.
We will have a lively discussion, an activity and a book-related snack.
We have lots going on for tweens in the month of November. Take a look:
Young Rembrandts - Young Rembrandts teaches drawing with a see-touch-do method that all children can succeed with, learn from and love! Together we will explore a fun filled hour using pencils, sharpies and markers.
Students can expect: an exciting engaging drawing lesson, new unique drawing techniques, and colorful fun!
For the May meeting of Book Buddies we will be discussing A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck. If you haven't read it yet, you are in for a real treat. Set during the Great Depression, Joey tells the tale of his annual visit to his grandmother's house in the country. But as you will quickly find out, Grandma Dowell is not your typical grandmother.
At the next Book Buddies meeting we will discuss The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch. This is the story of two eleven-year-old misfits who try to solve the mystery of a dead magician and stop the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais, who are searching for the secret of immortality.
We will have a lively discussion, a spirited activity and a delicious snack.
