Join Sarah Prattson each month on Zoom for our Virtual Chapter Book Club for Kids, specially designed for early chapter book readers.
We always read the first book in a chapter book series. This month, read “Lunch Walks Among Us” by Jim Benton, part of the Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist series (and a HUGE favorite of our early chapter book readers from past book clubs!)
Franny K. Stein is not your average girl — she’s a mad scientist. She prefers poison ivy to daisies, and when Franny jumps rope, she uses her pet snake. The kids in Franny’s class think she’s weird, wacky, and just plain creepy.
Tired of being stared at, Franny decides to attempt her most dangerous experiment yet — she’s going to fit in. but when a giant Monstrous Fiend attacks the class, everyone knows it’s up to a mad scientist to save the day. But has Franny lost her creepy, crawly ways?
We’ll meet online for 1/2 hour at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month, after reading this month’s selection. The group then gets to help choose next month’s books, and can sign up to read the sequels to this month’s choice.
