How to Eat Fried Worms

Kids' Club - How To Eat Fried Worms

January's Kids' Club theme is Funny Stuff.  On January 7, we will read the scandalous classic How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell.   Kids' Club is our book club for readers ages 5-12. We meet every other Saturday from 2 - 3 p.m. Your child does not have to read the book ahead of time to participate.  We will read a selection as a group then play a game or make a project.  Children will be introduced to new titles so they can pick a perfect book to read at home.
