Book Discussion Kits: Part 2, books for Grades 3-5

Posted by Staff

Our Youth Department has created a series of book discussion kits for our patrons to check out and use.  Each kit contains 10 copies of the book, a series of discussion questions and a box in which to carry everything.  The kits can be checked out for three weeks with two renewals. The person checking out the kit is responsible for all items and they must be returned together. Although the kits were prepared with educators in mind, they are a perfect fit for bookclubs and family book discussions.  This selection of titles is appropriate for Grades 3-5.  Request one today!

Jackie & Me by Dan Gutman  With his ability to travel through time by using baseball cards, Joe goes back to 1947 to meet Jackie Robinson. In the process, the color of his skin changes for the trip.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume.  Living with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing. Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, smearing smashed potatoes on walls at Hamburger Heaven, or scribbling all over Peter's homework, he's never far from trouble. He's a two-year-old terror who gets away with everything {u2014} and Peter's had enough. When Fudge walks off with Dribble, Peter's pet turtle, it's the last straw. Peter has put up with Fudge too long. How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change?
