Kids in fourth grade and higher are invited to join the Kids’ Wild About Books Club at Hawkins Memorial Library. Each month a new and interesting book will be selected for reading just for fun.
Savvy, written by Ingrid Law, is the book chosen for discussion on Wednesday, October 16, at 3:45 PM. In this book, thirteen is when a Beaumont’s savvy hits—and with one brother who causes hurricanes and another who creates electricity, Mibs Beaumont is eager to see what she gets. But just before the big day, Poppa is in a terrible accident. And now all Mibs wants is a savvy that will save him. After this extraordinary adventure—full of talking tattoos and a kidnapping—not a soul on board will ever be the same.
To participate, readers need to register at the library, and check out and read the book of the month before the discussion date. Book Club kids will get together monthly to share thoughts and talk about what they have read, led by Amy Griswold, UNI Literature Instructor. There won’t be tests over books each month, just lively and imaginative discussions to help kids enjoy reading.
