Boys Book Club # 2

You might have caught my post a few weeks ago on the Boys Book Club that my son is a part of. If not, here is the link.

The book that they read for the last 2 1/2 weeks is called Stink, the Incredible Shrinking Kid. This series is awesome. If you have a child who likes to read, or really does not really like to read, I bet they would love STINK!

(From Amazon)...Kindergarten-Grade 2-Judy Moody's little brother, James (aka Stink), is the shining star of this dramatic production of Megan McDonald's beginning chapter book (Candlewick, 2005). Stink's perception that he is shorter than the average second grader is reinforced by his sister, Judy, who revels in every opportunity for sibling rivalry. While the story line centers around Stink's height problem, it also embraces humor and provides plenty of facts to make the story believable. When President's Day arrives, for example, Stink presents a brief report on the shortest president, James Madison. McDonald's humor-infused story is full of puns (the classroom "newt in shining armor" meets his untimely end in the garbage disposal while under Stink's care for the weekend) that will keep listeners glued to their headphones.


This week my gal pal, Beth, taught the kids and it was hilarious!  Their "project" (after discussion time) was to make a James Madison Wig (you have to read the book to understand it..lol)...using a paper bag and cotton balls..little glue...here is the result...


LOVE IT!

The girls did some crafts and played...


The last book of the Summer for the Boys Book Club will be....


Why not start a children's book club in your area?  It's fun and keeps the kids interested!

Read on friends....
