Junior Book Club
It would appear that Dodie Smith’s classic tale of loveable Dalmatians, ‘The Hundred and One Dalmatians’, has charmed another generation of young readers. Congratulations to The Sheepdog team (aka St. David’s) for winning a closely fought Book Club quiz this half-term.
The next Book Club text is ‘Wonder’, a debut novel by R J Palacio, published in 2012. Malorie Blackman, the current Children’s Laureate, said of ‘Wonder’:
“What a gem of a story. Moving and heart warming. This book made me laugh, made me angry, made me cry”.
The Financial Times said:
“When the kids have finished with this the adults will want to read it. Everybody should”.
The next Book Club will be held on Wednesday 12th March, in Circle Time. All those who have read the text, had it read to them or have listened to the audio book are welcome to attend.
