Get Together and READ!

We have launched our new parent/student reading program and can’t wait to see all of you participate over the school year. This program offers the chance for five students, along with their parents, to read the same book and share their thoughts, comments, and company. (Or, ten students might choose to do the same.)

Simply check out a “bag of books” from the library. The bag contains:

  • 10 copies of an exciting book that appeals to all ages
  • A short summary of the book
  • A list of things to talk about
  • Related activities
  • Links to the author
  • Recommendations for similar titles

Choose from:
Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce , Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix, The Trolls by Polly Horvath, Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce , A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck , The Dragon of Lonely Island by Rebecca Rupp , Loser by Jerry Spinelli , A Sailor Returns by Theodore Taylor , The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop

Don’t forget to stop by the Village Library…and check it out!

This program was generously funded by The Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools--our many thanks!
