Latest Book Club Picks

For the fifth-graders’ parent-child book club, Ruby has selected Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn. Naomi is enjoying it very much so far!

Gabi–inspired by its mention in last month’s pick (Paper Towns)–has chosen Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass for the seventh-graders’ parent-child book club. She knows it’s long, and we’ll see how the discussion works. I’ll be curious to see how much background knowledge and context these young folks find they need to be able to enjoy the poems.
