Page Turners: A Book Club for Grades 3-5

Page Turners, a book club for grades 3-5 featuring STEAM crafts and activities based around a selected book will meet at the Cumming Library on October 22 at 4:00 p.m.  

The featured book for October is I Survived: True Stories by Lauren Tarshis. It is part of her I Survived series in which each book tells a terrifying and thrilling story from history, through the eyes of a boy who lived to tell the tale.

At the heart of each story is a nonfiction article about a fascinating and exciting topic from history or science.  I Survived: True Stories tells these tales of natural and man- made disasters from both historical and contemporary times, including:

  • The Children's Blizzard of 1888
  • The Titanic, 1912
  • The Great Boston Molasses Flood, 1919
  • The Japanese Tsunami, 2011
  • The Henryville Tornado, 2012  
The Page Turners book club will be discussing the stories and performing sink or float experiments, making a tornado in a bottle, and learning tornado safety tips.  Registration is recommended.
