Reading Rules: A Book Club for Grades 3-6

Reading Rules: A Book Club for Grades 3 - 6 meets at the Cumming Library on  September 25th at 1:00 p.m.  

Have you ever wanted to keep something that wasn't yours? In Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, a young boy named Marty is hiking in the woods and comes across a beagle that follows him home. Marty wants to keep the dog, however his father makes him return it to the owner. The owner is not a very nice man and treats his animals poorly. A few days later the dog returns and Marty decides that he will secretly build a pen for Shiloh in the woods. In order to feed Shiloh, Marty is willing to go hungry, sneaking out a portion of his meals each day. He enjoys caring for and playing with the dog, managing to keep it a secret from his family and friends.   Then one night a terrible accident happens that changes everything.

Reading Rules is a book club designed for schedules of families who homeschool their children, but all children whose schedules allow are welcome to attend.
