For awhile now the library has circulated book group kits for adults. Each kit contains 10 books and a discussion guide and may be checked out for six weeks. Now we are offering children’s book group kits as well. Newark received three kits.

The Friendship Doll (4th grade and up)
“Throughout the twentieth century, Miss Kanagawa, one of fifty-eight dolls made to serve as ambassadors from Japan to the United States, travels the country learning to love while changing the lives of those who need her”

Roscoe Riley Rules #1: Never Glue Your Friends to Chairs (2nd grade and up)
“When the first-graders’ bee antennae would not stay on their heads and the drummers would not stay in their seats for the open house play, Roscoe decides to help by using the “don’t-you-dare” glue”

Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Sary Things (2nd grade and up)
“A young boy in Concord, Massachusetts, who loves superheroes and comes from a long line of brave Chinese farmer-warriors, wants to make friends, but first he must overcome his fear of everything”
