Bookworms Book Club

This month, our Bookworms book club for second and third graders read Space Taxi: Archie Takes Flight by Wendy Mass.  When Archie is 8 years, 8 months, and 8 days old, he is able to go to work with his father.  He knew his father drove a taxi, but he didn't know he drove passengers in space instead of on Earth.  Archie is his father's navigator as they begin a trip that becomes quite an adventure.  Archie Takes Flight is the first book in a series, so if you enjoy it, you can read more about Archie in two more books

Pockets the cat was the group's favorite character in this book.  Here are a couple of illustrations of Pockets:

Our next Bookworms program will be held on Tuesday, November 10 at 4:45 P.M.  Read any book in Ron Roy's Calendar Mysteries series before the program.  During the program, we'll discuss the books and solve our own mystery.  See more information and register here.
