Hooked on Books Club (Gr 3-5) for November

Standard

night

The “Hooked on Books” Club will meet on Tuesday, November 11th during recess.  We will be reading Night of the Twisters by Ivy Ruckman.  This is a 2015 Bluestem nominee.  Students should have the book read before our meeting date so that we can discuss the entire book.

When a tornado watch is issued one Tuesday evening in June, twelve-year-old Dan Hatch and his best friend, Arthur, don’t think much of it. After all, tornado warnings are a way of life during the summer in Grand Island, Nebraska. But soon enough, the wind begins to howl, and the lights and telephone stop working. Then the emergency siren starts to wail. Dan, his baby brother, and Arthur have only seconds to get to the basement before the monstrous twister is on top of them. Little do they know that even if they do survive the storm, their ordeal will have only just begun…

Students can check this book out of our school library or the public library.  If you would like Mrs. Susina to order a copy of the book for you, please send $6 (cash if possible) to school by Friday, October 24th.  This will allow enough time for the books to arrive and for your child to have the book read by our club date.
