This week, we finish The Giver by Lois Lowry. Read chapters nineteen through twenty-three. Get ready because Ms. Lowry packs a punch in chapter nineteen. Parents, if you are reading the novel with your children, read chapter nineteen ahead of time and prepare yourself for questions.
For our next book, I am dropping into a younger category with Sid Fleischman’s The Whipping Boy, although this Newbury Medal winner is a fun read for any age. We will spend only one week with this novel because it is a short one. If you have a mischievous streak, especially you boys, you will love this story of Jemmy and Prince Brat.
