Service Description

Gather with old and new friends for Book Club and socialize! Reading out loud has many benefits for the emergent reader as well as the experienced reader. Your child will build their comprehension, fluency and vocabulary while exploring the themes in the book through drama, artistic activities and movement games. READ OUT LOUD BOOK CLUBS includes a new copy of the book with a signed bookplate and a Zoom visit with the author at the end of our sessions! CALVIN COCONUT: TROUBLE MAGNET A humorous chapter book about a fourth-grade boy, full of the fun of growing up in Hawaii. Calvin Coconut lives near the beach in Kailua, Hawaii, with his mom and his little sister. All his friends live there, too. Mom says: “You’re the man of the house, Cal.” Which means: Be responsible. Calvin tries, but fun—and trouble—follows him wherever he goes, even in the classroom, also known as Mr. Purdy’s Fourth-Grade Boot Camp. And how can he be the man of the house after teenage Stella-from-Texas arrives to be the live-in babysitter and steps all over Calvin’s turf? Award-winning author Graham Salisbury welcomes younger readers to a lively series with great illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers.
