Books & Bites Book Club
Our book club for fourth and fifth graders has returned! We will be meeting outside, weather permitting of course.
Join us on Wednesday, November 17 at 2:30 to talk about George by Alex Gino and do a fun outdoor activity together. Participants can pick up a free copy of the book at the Library, while supplies last. Sign up here.
So what's the book about?
When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl. George thinks she'll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte's Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can't even try out for the part . . . because she's a boy. With the help of her best friend, Kelly, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte -- but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.
Here is a list of the books we've already read (or click here to see them all in our library catalog):
