New geography book club for kids

There’s a new book club for kids grades 3-5.  It’s called Read Around
the World, and it will cover geography and world cultures via
literature and music.  Each month, the focus will be on a different
country.  This month, it’s the United States of America.  Over the
course of the year, the kids will be visiting Peru, China, Russia,
Kenya, and many other countries. Normally, the kids will have read a
book about the country, but there is no reading requirement for
this initial meeting.

The first session is tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 4:00.  We meet at
the Davie/Cooper City Library, located at 4600 SW 82 Avenue, Davie, FL
33328. It’s on the south side of Griffin Road, between Pine Island and
University Drive.  This session is on a Tuesday because of Veterans
Day, but it will normally be held on Mondays. The next session is
Monday, Dec. 3.

The book club will be led by Miss Linda Sindt, who developed a
geography curriculum for the Broward schools, and who many of
us remember from Young at Art.  She is an outstanding educator and
amazing with kids.

The club is not specifically for homeschoolers, but I know that several
homeschoolers will be there.

Of course, the book club is free.  It’s undertaken by One Beautiful
World in conjunction with the Davie/Cooper City Library.  OBW has
received a Target Early Literacy Grant for this program.

Spread the word, and I hope to see many of you there.
