Phoenix Book Club: Sports
We're gearing up for this summer with books about sports! This coming summer's theme is On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! And we did, with books about everything from running to baseball to spelunking!
There are a lot of books out there on a wide variety of physical activities. Sure, you've got your baseball books, basketball books, football books, soccer books, and more. But there are also books about swimming, ice skating, running, dancing, and, of course, Quidditch. For this month we read books all over that list, and then some. There are a couple of authors who figure big in any kids' sports book list: Mike Lupica and John Feinstein, and both were popular amongst the kids in our book club. But we also had fun reading about things like running just for the fun of it. Overall, a good reaction to these books, with a couple of exceptions the kids just couldn't get into. But after some book trading on Tuesday night maybe those books will find new readers? That's part of the fun of this book club.
Next month is the first of our two summer book club meetings. In July and August we all read the same book and get together to talk about it. For July we'll be reading The Fast and the Furriest, by Andy Behrens. Place a hold or grab a copy in the Children's Room, then join us to talk about it at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12th in the Children's Room.
