Book Discussion Kits

Book discussions are all the rage, not just among grown-ups.  Parent/child book groups are springing up all over the place.   To help these eager readers along, the Parkland Community Library will offer book discussion kits for readers as young as 8 through middle school.  Each kit will hold 10 paperback copies of the featured title, discussion questions and suggestions for further reading and.or activities.  These kits will be known as Talk Totes, Jr.  The Parkland Community Library offers similar kits for adults called Talk Totes.

The first three Talk Totes, Jr. will be The Cricket in Times Square by George Selden, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo, and Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray.  Talk Totes, Jr. should be available by October 1st.

The Cricket in Times Square celebrates a milestone this Fall.  Chester the Cricket is 50 years old!  Celebrate fifty years of making music in the subway underneath Times Square, plotting his return to a land of meadows and trees and helping a family newsstand survive by checking this classic story out of the Parkland Community Library.  Hooray for The Cricket in Times Square!
