Calling all kids! Cover to Cover Adventure is a book group for kids 8-12 years of age led by Hana of Village Books. We meet every second Tuesday of the month from 4-5pm in the Readings Gallery. When we get together, we examine and explore the story we have read through discussions, crafts, activities, and games. Don't miss out on the fun!
Reading encourages thinking and imagination, and the goal of Cover to Cover Adventure is to provide kids the opportunity to completely immerse themselves in the world of a book. This group takes a break during the summer holiday. The last meeting of the school year will take place in June, and we will pick back up again in September. Questions? Shoot an email to Hana at email@example.com.
