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 March, Ms. O’Handley will be talking about two great books!

“Galimoto” by Karen Lynn Williams, illustrated by Catherine Stock
Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 6 PM

Kondi is determined to make a galimoto—a toy vehicle made of wires. His brother laughs at the idea, but all day Kondi goes about gathering up the wire he needs. By nightfall, his wonderful galimoto is ready for the village children to play with in the light of the moon.

This Reading Rainbow book is a school and library favorite that offers a view of life in the southeast African nation of Malawi, one of the world’s least-developed nations in the world.

“Magic Trash: A Story of Tyree Guyton and His Art” by J. H. Shapiro, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton
Tuesday, March 8, 2022, at 6 PM

This uplifting picture book biography about community-based Detroit artist Tyree Guyton introduces the use of recycled items in art and how one person can make a big difference in the lives of young people.

Tyree Guyton, an urban environmental artist, loved his childhood home—that’s where his grandpa Sam taught him to “paint the world.” So he wanted to wake people up… to make them see Detroit’s crumbling communities. Paintbrush in hand, Tyree cast his artistic spell, transforming everyday junk into magic trash. Soon local kids and families joined Tyree in rebuilding their neighborhood, discovering the healing power of art along the way. The story spans from Tyree’s childhood in 1950s Detroit to his early efforts to heal his community through art and his creation of the Heidelberg Project—an interactive sculpture park—in the 1980s. Tyree’s awards include Michigan Artist of the Year and International Artist.
