Andrew Luck Book Club: First Rookie Book – Maniac Magee

Maniac Magee

Indianapolis Colt Andrew Luck has started a book club. You don’t have to login or sign up or anything! Just read the book! Then, as he says:

“We will use social media to check in with each other periodically about where we are in the books, post our thoughts, comments, questions and such. And every so often, I’ll host a Q&A on AndrewLuckBookClub.com so we can have a “live” discussion about the books.”

And also, Maniac Magee is worth 25 points for the Summer Reading Program! Not signed up yet? Learn all about it here. 2016 SRP Logo V3A

April National Poetry Month – Try These: Books in Verse

April National Poetry Month – Try These: Books in Verse

National Poetry Month is a national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The books on this page are chapter book stories…written in verse. You might not think of these kinds of books right away when you think of poetry. The word “poetry” probably makes you think of “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and Shel Silverstein. But these books are poetry too, and how amazing, an author writing a whole chapter book in verse.
