Picture books aren't just for little kids. This month the Phoenix Book Club read from our Oversize collection of picture books for big kids.

Oversize Books

Most of the picture books in the Children's Room are intended for younger readers, though there's no reason big kids can't grab an old favorite and read it when the mood strikes! We have, however, a special collection of picture books that are intended for older readers. Some of them are simply too long to go in with the regular picture books. Some are too spooky or creepy. Some are on serious topics and go into more depth than younger readers are prepared for. Last month the members of the Phoenix Book Club got to browse this special section near the chapter books and pick out a handful of Oversize books to take a look at. In general the kids liked them! The addition of full color illustrations to a story meant for an older reader made for a fun and interesting read for many. Others liked that what seemed like a short story was far more complex with the illustrations added. Overall it was a nice easy theme for a busy month.

The Statewide Summer Reading theme for 2014 is Fizz, Boom, Read, focusing on science all summer long, so we'll be gearing up for summer by reading science books for June's book club meeting. Science fiction, science fact, books about science fairs and scientific discovery, they all count. Pick up a book from the selections behind the desk at the Main Library Children's Room and join us on June 10th at 7:00 p.m. Note: In June we welcome kids who will be entering 5th grade in September 2014! We will also be having a pizza party. So please let us know if you will be coming and make your pizza preference known when you sign up so we have enough!
