Middle Grade Bookclub
RoscoeBooks wants you to get lost in a book!
We invite your 8-12 year old readers* to meet with us once a month to discuss a different book! We'll tackle fantasy, mysteries, social dramas, and just about everything in between. Here are a few of the book we've read in the past:
Stella by Starlight by Sharon M. Draper
Rump by Liesl Shurtliff
The Brixton Brothers: The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity by Mac Barnett
One White Dolphin by Gill Lewis
The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo
A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin
A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz and more!
No reservations necessary. Parents are welcome, but not required to attend! Just show up ready to chat about the book we're reading that month! We'll provide thematic snacks and some fun activities!
What We're Reading: This month, we're getting spooky with The Haunting of Falcon House by Eugene Yelchin.
*If you're concerned about the reading level of the books we're choosing, please see Kelsey or Erika at the store. We can help give you some insight about whether your reader will need a little parent-aided help or if it's something they can tackle on their own.
For any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A long undisturbed bedroom. A startling likeness. A mysterious friend.
When twelve-year-old Prince Lev Lvov goes to live with his aunt at Falcon House, he takes his rightful place as heir to the Lvov family estate. Prince Lev dreams of becoming a hero of Russia like his great ancestors. But he'll discover that dark secrets haunt this house. Prince Lev is the only one who can set them free--will he be the hero his family needs?
From Eugene Yelchin, the author and illustrator of Arcady's Goal and the Newbery Award-winning Breaking Stalin's Nose, comes The Haunting of Falcon House, an illustrated middle grade story that'll both haunt readers and leave them knowing a little bit more about Russian history.
