Some of our schools are filling up quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot at your favorite school!
The April books are bound to have many fans; this month's theme is "environment," and this selection of books is really excellent. Longtime Reading to Kids partner at Magnolia, teacher Sarah Cooper, picked most of this month's titles. Thanks, Sarah!
Ever wonder why there are so many things in California named for John Muir? Well, join our 4th graders in reading Squirrel and John Muir and learn the true story of a little girl named Squirrel and her friendship with trailblazer John Muir. It'll make you want to visit Yosemite!
Carl Hiaasen's Newberry Honor Book Hoot is a raucous run through Florida, complete with potty-trained alligators and nasty poisonous snakes. Sound intriguing? Our 5th graders will love it!
"At the far end of town/ where the Grickle-grass grows/ and the wind smells slow-and-sour when it blows/ and no birds ever sing excepting old crows/ is the Street of the Lifted Lorax," begins our 3rd grade selection, ever-popular Seuss classic The Lorax. This book is popular for a reason: it focuses on the power of individuals to change the world, the destructive nature of greed, and the need for protecting nature. And, it's also a lot of fun to read!

For many of the books listed on our website, you can click on the book's title to access the craft ideas our Curriculum Committee designed! These dedicated volunteers meet on the third Sunday of each month to hatch these ideas -- they all deserve our thanks!
Enjoy your weekend and join us at the April Reading Clubs!
