August is a great time to get back into the reading habit for back to school season. The Kid/Parent Book Club has chosen to read two books this month: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Stop by Bayne Library to pick up your copies today! We will meet on Monday, August 27 @ 6:00 p.m. for a fun and lively discussion.
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden is about Mary Lennox, who is sent to live with her uncle after the death of her parents. At her uncle’s mysterious home, she grows and learns to care about more than just herself. -Amazon Books
Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius-and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn’t know what he’s taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren’t the fairies of bedtime stories, these fairies are armed and dangerous. –SparkNotes
