We will be reading books in our free time and talking about them when we meet on Friday. We will read ten books:
A Wrinkle in Time by L’Engle
I Am David or North to Freedom (same book, different title) by Holm
The Hundred Dresses by Estes
Ella Enchanted by Levine
The King’s Equal by Paterson
The White Mountains by Christopher
The Little Prince by Saint Exupery
Among the Hidden by Haddix
The Willoughbys by Lowry
and a Biography of your own choosing which we will talk about on the last day.
All of these books are available through the library system.
Class Requirements: Must be able to read well and be committed to reading all of the books. You may need to get started reading a little early since the first two books a bit long. There are short books in the middle to help with the pace.
Materials Needed: Books, or borrowed books. An ability to talk in a group and politely listen to differing opinions.
