Animal Books

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 January we read books that featured animal characters who could talk or people who could talk to animals. Some of the books we read were James Howe's Bunnicula, Livi Michael's City of Dogs and Kate DiCamillo's The Tale of Despereaux.

Check out our book list to see what some of the kids had to say about what they read: Talking Animals

What with the blizzard, we didn't meet in February but on March 12th we'll be meeting to talk about books set in, on or near the ocean. If you know a 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grader who might be interested, come on in and grab a book from the Children's Room and join us on March 12th at 7:00 p.m.!
