4th/5th Grade Book Club

March 6 @ 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Flyer for 4th/5th Grade Book Club: Meets on Wednesday, March 6 at 3:30pm in the Maker Space. For kids ages 8-12. Registration required.

For kids in 4th and 5th grade only

This month, we’re reading The Secret of the Ravens by Joanna Cacao:

Twin siblings Elliot and Liza only have each other. Their parents are gone. Their home was taken, and to survive on their own, they’re forced to scrounge up plastic and metal to trade for coin within an abandoned garbage heap. Desperate to escape the vagabond cycle that they’re trapped in, the answer to their plight seemingly appears when they stumble upon a Raven Quest—magical tasks offered by mysterious message-carrying ravens that when successfully completed, promise the victors coin and untold riches.

In a gamble to change their fates, Elliot and Liza follow the trail of Raven Quests to the kingdom’s capital, where the greedy rulers of the Kawumiti Kingdom reign and young people are enlisted to train as royal mages for the kingdom’s army. But the Ravens Quests aren’t as they seem, and the King is on a mission to hunt down vagrant participants like the twins. When a quest goes terribly wrong, Liza is poisoned, and Elliot finds himself racing against the clock to find the cure. Now the only way to save his sister is to join forces with a royal apprentice and a dark mage with mysterious motives of her own—even if it means sacrificing everything.

The book is available for pickup at the Children’s Desk about one month in advance.

4th and 5th Grade Book Club will meet in the Maker Space.

Sign up is required for this program. Registration will begin on February 1. Please complete the sign up form below.
