Virtual Book Club
Our virtual do-it-at-home book clubs for all ages continue! The best part? Everyone who participates gets to keep the book!
Pick up your free book and activity packet by visiting the library! Every book will come with a blank review form, a few questions you can think about, and a small craft or activity that ties into the book. All we ask is that you read the book: do as much or as little of the rest of it as you want!
The books are:
- Grades K-3: Noodlehead Nightmares by Tedd Arnold, Martha Hamilton, and Mitch Weiss. “Mac and Mac, who love pie and hate making their beds, are hollow-headed. ‘See in here? Nothing! Zippo! Nada!’ Mac explains. That’s why they get duped by their friend Meatball and fooled out of their fair shares of apple pie. Slapstick humor, puns and wacky fun abound as the empty-headed duo comes up with outlandish solutions for everyday problems, such as sleeping under their beds to avoid ever having to make them again. Written in a comic-book style, this book will have young readers rolling on the floor,” (Noodlehead Nightmares, 2016).
- Grades 3-5: The Princess in Black by Shannon and Dean Hale. “Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when… Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia. But luckily Princess Magnolia has a secret – she’s also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her! [T]he first in a humorous and action-packed chapter-book series for young readers who like their princesses not only prim and perfect, but also dressed in black,” (The Princess in Black, 2017).
We will have a post for each book on https://www.splyouth.org for anyone who wants to discuss the book or comment on any of the questions or activities. If you’d prefer not to go online, fill out the included review sheets and get them back to the library, and we can post your comments for you! Even better, everyone who either posts on our site or brings back anything included with the book – even if it’s just a picture of the craft you did – will also get a small prize at the library!
