April Book Club - Sneak Peek

Updated: May 18, 2022

"Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!" by Mo Willems

“When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place — a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.”


"Ways to Make Sunshine" by Renée Watson

“Ryan Hart loves to spend time with her friends, loves to invent recipes, and has a lot on her mind — school, self-image, and family. Her dad finally has a new job, but money is tight. That means changes like selling their second car and moving into a new (old) house. But Ryan is a girl who knows how to make sunshine out of setbacks. Because Ryan is all about trying to see the best. Even when things aren’t all she would wish for — her brother is infuriating, her parents don’t understand, when her recipes don’t turn out right, and when the unexpected occurs — she can find a way forward, with wit and plenty of sunshine.”


"Black Panther: The Young Prince" by Ronald L. Smith

“Life is comfortable for twelve-year-old T'Challa in his home of Wakanda, an isolated, technologically advanced African nation. But as conflict brews near Wakanda, T'Challa's father makes a startling announcement: he's sending T'Challa and his best friend M'Baku to school in America, at South Side Middle School in the heart of Chicago. Despite being given a high-tech suit and a Vibranium ring to use only in case of an emergency, T'Challa realizes he might not be as equipped to handle life in America as he thought. When strange things begin happening around school, T'Challa sets out to uncover the source. But what he discovers in the process is far more sinister than he could ever have imagined. In order to protect his friends and stop an ancient evil, T'Challa must take on the mantle of a hero, setting him on the path to becoming the Black Panther.”


"Heartstopper 1" by Alice Oseman

“Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more...? Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn't been too great, but at least he's not being bullied anymore. Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He's heard a little about Charlie the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months but he's never had the opportunity to talk to him. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn't think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner...”
