Last month at the McSpedden Library our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders participated in our December book clubs.
For the 5th graders, I led this book club and we read The Neptune Project by Polly Holyoke. This is one of our Bluebonnet books this year about a young girl named Nere who discovers that she is part of a a science experiment where they bio-engineered her lungs to be able to breath water as well as air. She and a group of other genetically modified kids find out they are part of “The Neptune Project,” which aims at creating a new human society in the ocean, far away from the dangers of land. However, the dangers of the sea are just as deadly.
For the 4th and 5th graders, they came on Friday mornings and met with our Independence student Sruthi who led them in the book Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein. I know I enjoyed seeing Sruthi lead the students in this book club and I think the kids really enjoyed this book!
