Book Bugs Book Group:for grades 4 & 5 (Northside Library)
The Book Bugs is a book group for grades 4 and 5. We meet in order to discuss the book, snack, play book trivia and sometimes we even incorporate a craft related to the theme of the book. It lasts for 45 minutes to an hour and is a lot of fun! Registration is required.
Book Bugs Books:
The Westing Game
The kids loved this book. They were intrigued by the mystery and thought that Turtle was a great main character.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The kids enjoyed this book and they especially enjoyed making candy as the craft.
Millicent Min, Girl Genius
This was a surprising hit. The kids thought it was hilarious and it was actually one of their favorite books of the ones we read. Most of the Book Bugs found Millicent to be entertaining with her socially awkward ways.
Bud, Not Buddy
This was another hit. Kids liked the story and the craft was very popular (we made memory boxes to symbolize Bud's suitcase).
Everything on a Waffle
The kids thought it was a funny book and liked the main character, Primrose. The craft was "Everything on a Waffle" and some kids were adventurous and tried every candy available on their waffles. Other kids were grossed out.
