Detective LaRue: Letters from the Investigation by Mark Teague

Meanwhile by Jason Shiga

Join us for exciting, new elementary book clubs at the Sharon Forks Library! Chatterbooks: A Book Club for Grades K-2 combines a read-aloud story, age appropriate book discussion and questions, as well as crafts and activities to reinforce what we read.  This month we’ll be discussing Detective LaRue: Letters from the Investigation by Mark Teague. Poor Ike!  This innocent dog has been arrested for the disappearance of two local cats.  His owner is on vacation, so Ike takes matters into his own paws to solve the mystery.  This story is told from the letters Ike writes to his owner and from newspaper articles. Participants in Chatterbooks will be making their own exciting edition of The Snort City Register/Gazette. S.T.E.A.M. Reads: A Book Club for Grades 3-5 This new book club integrates science, technology, engineering, art, and math (S.T.E.A.M.) concepts into a fun literacy-based program. Participants can read the book in advance, but it’s not required!  This month we’ll be discussing Meanwhile by Jason Shiga. This choose-your-own-adventure style graphic novel includes 3,856 different possible adventures as you follow wacky mazes and colored lines throughout the book. Participants in S.T.E.A.M. Reads will learn about mazes and make their own marble maze while discussing Meanwhile.   Join us for these new book groups at the Sharon Forks Library on August 21 from 4:00-4:45 p.m. Advance registration is suggested.
