Summer Book Club: Grades 3rd-5th
Do you enjoy reading and discussing books with others? If you do, then Summer Book Club is for you! The book we will be reading and discussing is Pay it Forward: Young Readers Edition by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Pay It Forward is a moving, uplifting novel about Trevor McKinney, a twelve-year-old boy in a small California town who accepts his teacher’s challenge to earn extra credit by coming up with a plan to change the world. Trevor’s idea is simple: do a good deed for three people, and instead of asking them to return the favor, ask them to “pay it forward” to three others who need help. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading across the world, and in this “quiet, steady masterpiece with an incandescent ending” (Kirkus Reviews), Trevor’s actions change his community forever. Participants will receive their own copy of the book.
