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!

“Journey” by Aaron Becker

Tuesdays, December 6th and 20th at 5 PM

“A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart’s desire? With supple line, luminous color, and nimble flights of fancy, author-illustrator Aaron Becker launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey toward her greatest and most exciting adventure of all.” – Goodreads


“The Call of the Wild” by Jack London

Tuesdays, January 3rd and 10th at 5 PM

“The story follows a dog named Buck, a 140 pound Saint Bernard and Scotch Shepherd mix. Buck is abducted from a comfortable life as a pet and tossed into the chaos of the Klondike Gold Rush and the brutal realities of frontier life. Buck changes hands a number of times before landing in the kindly hands of John Thornton.”- American Literature


“Heal of the Water Monster” by Brian Young and “We are Water Protectors” by Carol Lindstrom

Tuesdays, February 7th and 14th at 5 PM

“When Nathan goes to visit his grandma, Nali, at her mobile summer home on the Navajo reservation, he knows he’s in for a pretty uneventful summer. Still, he loves spending time with Nali, and with his uncle Jet—though it’s clear when Jet arrives that he brings his problems with him. One night, while lost in the nearby desert, Nathan finds something extraordinary. A Holy Being from the Navajo Creation Story—a Water Monster—in need of help. Now Nathan must summon all his courage to save his new friend. With the help of other Navajo Holy Beings, Nathan is determined to save the Water Monster, and to help Uncle Jet heal from his own pain.” – Goodreads

“Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earth’s water from harm and corruption–a bold and lyrical picture book written by Carole Lindstrom and vibrantly illustrated by Michaela Goade.” – Goodreads
