One More Chapter Book Club
Recommended for independent readers age 8 through 12
Join Ms. Colleen & Miss Emma for our One More Chapter Book Club. We meet after-school, once-a-month, to discuss traditional, novel-style chapter books. Snacks and activity will be provided.
February's Book Club
We will be reading Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead. We will meet on Wednesday, February 8, at 3:30 p.m.
It’s been five years since Livy and her family have visited Livy’s grandmother in Australia. Now that she’s back, Livy has the feeling she’s forgotten something really, really important about Gran’s house.
It turns out she’s right.
Bob, a short, greenish creature dressed in a chicken suit, didn’t forget Livy, or her promise. He’s been waiting five years for her to come back, hiding in a closet like she told him to. He can’t remember who—or what—he is, where he came from, or if he even has a family. But five years ago Livy promised she would help him find his way back home. Now it’s time to keep that promise.
Clue by clue, Livy and Bob will unravel the mystery of where Bob comes from, and discover the kind of magic that lasts forever. (Summary from Goodreads)
Sign up below, visit the circulation desk, or email Ms. Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be meeting in the youth section of the Clubhouse Library. Find us on the second floor of 245 Conanicus Avenue (Jamestown Golf Course).
For New Book Club Members
At each session, the kids vote on a book to read together for the next month. Then, Ms. Colleen orders enough copies of that book through the Ocean State Libraries consortium. You pick up the book at the library (usually a week after the last book club). Books are never due before Book Club. Please reach out with any questions.
