Event Details

Designed to engage children in grades 3-6, Novel Thoughts introduces a variety of literature and involves children in activities that coincide with each session provided. We carefully select from classic stories, fables, popular series, graphic novels, and comics. Children benefit from the literary experience as well as the interactive participation incorporated into each session.

This winter, Ms. Aubrey will be talking about a few great books!

Huda F Are You? by Huda Fahmy

Tuesdays, March 7th and 14th at 5 PM

“Huda and her family just moved to Dearborn, Michigan, a small town with a big Muslim population. But Huda doesn’t fit in–when everyone is Muslim, there’s no Muslim clique like there was in her last town, and Huda’s not a sporty hijabi or a fashionista hijabi or a gamer hijabi. She’s just Huda, and she’s not sure what that means. She tries on all kinds of identities and friends, but nothing fits quite right. Until she realizes she can get back to the basics.” –Penguin Random House


A World Full of Poems: Poetry Anthology by D.K. Publishing

Tuesdays, April 4th and 11th at 5 PM

This month, we will be discussing poems from this anthology, as well as writing our own to create an anthology! Once our anthology is complete, we will put it on display. Join us to discuss, create, and have fun!


This Story is Not About a Kitten by Randall de Seve & Carson Elli and Adrian Simcox Does Not Have a Horse by Marcy Campbell

Tuesdays, May 2nd and 9th at 5 PM

“Contrary to what you may believe, this story is not about a kitten, hungry and dirty, scared and alone, needing a home. It is also not about the dog who heard the kitten meowing sadly. Even less so about the woman and child walking the dog, who stopped when their dog heard the kitten. Nor is it about the friends who brought a box for the kitten, or the man who offered it some milk. No, this story is not about a kitten at all–well, maybe a little–but more importantly this is a story about community, compassion, and generosity.” – Goodreads

“Adrian Simcox tells anyone who will listen that he has a horse–the best and most beautiful horse anywhere. But Chloe does NOT believe him. Adrian Simcox lives in a tiny house. Where would he keep a horse? He has holes in his shoes. How would he pay for a horse? The more Adrian talks about his horse, the angrier Chloe gets. But when she calls him out at school and even complains about him to her mom, Chloe doesn’t get the vindication she craves. She gets something far more important.” – Goodreads
