Just because we are temporarily closed doesn’t mean our members aren’t reading. Today, we spotlight Annabelle. She is a fifth grader and a very enthusiastic reader. When asked to chose her favorite from the twenty-four books that our Kids’ Book Club has read, Annabelle chose, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.
Here’s what Annabelle said about this 2013 Newberry Medal winner: “I love it because it was sad but happy and showed us a whole new perspective about animals and the story behind them.”

What is Annabelle reading currently? She’s enjoying Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. Annabelle says “I love it because it tells a story about magic, the most amazing school in the world, and one boy whose adventure gets more and more dangerous.”
Our thanks to Annabelle for her recommendations. Stay posted for more Kids’ Book Club reviews.
