Chapter Chat is back with a little twist!
Pick up this month’s book with interactive elements that go along with the story at the Aurora or Dillsboro library today! As you read, there are items in the book bag that have page numbers on them and when you reach that page, you will open that item and interact with the story!
December’s book is Willodean by Kathrine Applegate.
Willodeen, an eleven-year-old girl, loves all animals, but her favorites are the weird creatures known as “screechers,” who are among the least endearing in the world. Although the residents of Perchance regard the creatures as pests or even monsters, Willodeen thinks they play an important part in the intricate natural system. But lately, nature has become very agitated, not a single Hummingbear has made it back to Perchance this year, and nobody knows why. Willodeen is resolved to speak out for the animals she loves and maybe even solve the mystery of the disappearing hummingbears when a homemade birthday gift brings unexpected magic to her and her new buddy, Connor.
Bags can be picked up at Aurora at the lower level desk and at Dillsboro.
Snacks and Drinks will be provided.
This program is open to children ages 7-12. Please register in advance by calling us at 812-926-0646 or visiting the Aurora or Dillsboro Public Libraries to speak to a librarian
Join Between the Lines Book Club leader Ron Nicholson as he shares “The Secrets & Surprises in A Christmas Carol,” discussing the story’s origins and background, how it impacted how we celebrate Christmas today, and share some “insider” information. For example, did you know Tiny Tim’s name was originally planned to be Little Dick, that Dickens’ first idea for the book was to include “Ignorance” and “Want” as symbols against the so-called Poor Laws, or that Scrooge’s name came from a misreading of a tombstone in Scotland? Meet us at the Local History Library in the Old Aurora Train Depot on Second Street for a lively talk at 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
