Phoenix Book Club - April 2013
The Phoenix Book Club is our book discussion group for kids in grades 5 through 8. In this group we all read different books from the same theme, then meet to tell each other about what we read. Themes range from genres to subjects to character types and change every month.
For April the Phoenix Book Club celebrated the birthday of two of our members by having some cupcakes before we talked about our books. Some special events happening elsewhere meant a smaller-than-usual group, but we had a lively discussion all the same. Maybe it was because the books themselves were so full of activity? Soccer was the sport of choice for most of our readers, but it was joined by dog agility, white water rafting and even Quidditch.
For May we're moving away from reading a specific subject and instead going for geography. Namely, the geography of the library. Everyone picked a book from a bottom shelf of our chapter book section. Our poor bottom shelves. No one thinks to look down there but they're full of hidden treasures! If you know a 5th - 8th grader who might be interested, grab a bottom shelf book and join us on May 14th at 7:00 p.m.
