Book Club for Kids and Parents

The lazy days and evenings of summer are the perfect time to share books as a family. Reading together not only promotes fluency and an increased vocabulary, it also strengthens family bonds and creates lasting memories. If you have a child ages 9 – 12, consider joining us on Monday, July 30th  @ 5:30 as we meet to discuss The Super Life of Ben Braver.  Reserve your copy today.

Ben Braver is an ordinary kid. All he wants to do is finish his summer watching awesome TV shows and eating his favorite candy. But when some kid screams for help, Ben, like his favorite comic book heroes, tries to save the day. Let’s just say it ends badly. But it does lead him to a secret school where kids with super abilities learn to control their powers. Ben’s never had any powers―and never thought he could be special. So when he’s offered a spot at the school, Ben realizes this is his chance to become the superhero he’s always dreamed of.   -Amazon Books
