4th and 5th Grade Book Club

Join us for our Monthly 4th and 5th grade book club. Each month we spend a Sunday afternoon discussing a new book and enjoying snacks. We currently have a great group of readers but are looking for more kids to join in the fun!

We meet next on Sunday, March 18th from 2-3pm.
We will be reading Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone


Ruthie thinks nothing exciting will ever happen to her until her sixth-grade class visits the Art Institute of Chicago, where she and her best friend Jack discover a magic key that shrinks them to the size of gerbils and allows them to explore the Thorne Rooms--the collection of sixty-eight miniature rooms from various time periods and places--and discover their secrets.

Next month we will meet April 22nd from 2-3pm.
We will be reading Missing on Superstition Mountain


It’s summer and the three Barker brothers—Simon, Henry, and Jack—just moved from Illinois to Arizona. Their parents have warned them repeatedly not to explore Superstition Mountain, which is near their home. But when their cat Josie goes missing, they see no other choice. There’s something unusually creepy about the mountain and after the boys find three human skulls, they grow determined to uncover the mystery. Have people really gone missing over the years, and could there be someone or some thing lurking in the woods? Together with their new neighbor Delilah, the Barker boys are dead-set on cracking the case even if it means putting themselves in harm’s way.
The 4th and 5th Grade Book Club will continue on in the Summer. Stay tuned for the June, July and August picks!
