Picture Book Club: The Adventures of Beekle
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Book clubs aren’t just for grown-ups! In fact, no grown-ups are allowed at this book club just for school-age kids! This fall, we’ll be discovering books that have recently won the Caldecott Medal. Each month this fall, children in grades 2-5 are invited to join us for a lively book discussion and snacks. This month, we’ll be reading The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend illustrated and written by Dan Santat. This magical story begins on an island far away where an imaginary friend is born. He patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when he is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match and-at long last-is given his special name: Beekle. New York Times bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Dan Santat combines classic storytelling with breathtaking art, creating an unforgettable tale about friendship, imagination, and the courage to find one’s place in the world.
