Fourth and Fifth Graders

Each month we'll have a book discussion, eat great snacks, and do a fun book-related activity together. This month we're talking about Measuring Up by Lily LaMotte. Participants can pick up a free copy of the book at the Library, while supplies last. Fourth and fifth graders only. This event is currently ready for sign-up, register here

What’s this book about? Twelve-year-old Cici has just moved from Taiwan to Seattle, and the only thing she wants more than to fit in at her new school is to celebrate her grandmother, A-má’s, seventieth birthday together. Since she can’t go to A-má, Cici cooks up a plan to bring A-má to her by winning the grand prize in a kids’ cooking contest to pay for A-má’s plane ticket! There’s just one problem: Cici only knows how to cook Taiwanese food.
