Books at the Beach: A Book Club for Kids and Homeschooled
November 16, 2018 @ 2:30 PM
Every month we’ll discuss a book & do fun activities based on the text. Everyone goes home with a book of their own to keep every month! Snacks and juice are served. Best for 5th grade reading levels and up. Homeschooled families are welcome!
November’s book will be Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. Having lost his mother and his hearing in a short time, twelve-year-old Ben leaves his Minnesota home in 1977 to seek the father he never knew in New York City, and meets there Rose, who is also longing for something missing from her life. Ben’s story is told in words; Rose’s in pictures.
Pick up the book from the Long Beach Island Branch ahead of time so you’ll be ready to discuss Wonderstruck with us.
