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!
This month, we're going on a quest with Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull. Next Meeting: Friday, August 11th at 4:30 pm
*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.
When their parents disappear in the middle of the night, young sisters Summer and Bird set off on a quest to find them. A cryptic picture message from their mother leads them to a familiar gate in the woods, but comfortable sights quickly give way to a new world entirely--Down--one inhabited by talking birds and the evil Puppeteer queen. Summer and Bird are quickly separated, and their divided hearts lead them each in a very different direction in the quest to find their parents, vanquish the Puppeteer, lead the birds back to their Green Home, and discover the identity of the true bird queen.
