On Zoom

Register here to receive the Zoom link.

Storytime's in the past - you've just been bumped up to the Big League of Books.

The Big Kid Book Club will be a virtual Zoom activity where I'll read the first chapters of three new books and you'll get to vote on the one you want to hear. Then, after each chapter, we'll talk about what's going on in the story and I'll read the whole book.

You'll be taking the next step up the literary ladder. Remember, today, The Big Kid Book Club, tomorrow - your driver's license.
