For April's book club we celebrated National Poetry Month.

Poetry 

Sure, some poetry can be boring, but the same is true of all kinds of literature! When we picked books for our poetry discussion there were more than a few reluctant readers, unsure they'd like anything we had to choose from. By the time we got back together to talk about our books, however, attitudes had changed! Everyone had found at least one poem they enjoyed and some had read through multiple books of poems and went looking for more. We all read some our favorite poems out to the group and they ranged from funny to serious to truly bizarre. We had rhymes and free verse and concrete and even a wonderful poem for two voices, read by two people at the same time (yes, they had to practice a little).

For May we're taking a look at what we call Oversize books in the Children's Room. Not all picture books are intended for little kids. Some books are spooky, long, tackle serious subjects or are just plain not interesting to a five year old. But they're great for an older reader who still wants to read a book with pictures. Know a 5th through 8th grader who might be interested? Grab an Oversize book from the collection in the Children's Room and join us on May 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the Children's Room.
