In this book discussion for second and third graders and an accompanying grown-up, we'll discuss this month's book by Nikki Grimes and play a book-related game or create a craft together.

Gabby daydreams to tune out her parents' arguments, but when her parents divorce and she begins at a new school, daydreaming gets her into trouble. Her mother scolds her for it, her teacher keeps telling her to pay attention, and the other kids tease her. Then she finds a friend who also daydreams and her teacher decides to work a daydreaming-writing session into every school day. With a notebook "thick with daydreams," Gabby grows more confident about herself and her future. 

Sign up for the discussion, then pick up a copy of the book at the Youth Services Desk. Please register the child only, although an adult must attend as well.
