This is a reminder that our first PAC Parent Reading Group for this year is coming up on Friday Jan. 26 @ 10:15am in the Learning Commons (Library). Below is the announcement which went out on the January Newsletter.
New! *NRP Parent Reading Group* All parents welcome!
When: Friday, January 26, 2018, 10:15 – 11:15 AM
Where: The Nest, NRP Learning Commons (up the stairs)
Are you interested in exploring the vast world of children’s literature with other parents? Our new Parent Reading Group will sample books that parents can enjoy reading on their own and with their child(ren). Each session will feature discussion of 1 to 3 books suitable for a range of reading levels.
In anticipation of NRP Multicultural Day, our first session on January 26 will be on the theme of Cultural Identity. Suggested readings:
Gr. K-3 reading level: The Name Jar*, by Yoonsook Choi (2001)
Gr. 4 and up reading level:
The Year of the Dog, by Grace Lin (2006)
Flying the Dragon, by Natalie Dias Lorenzi (2012)
All books are available through the Vancouver Public Library. Starred* titles are also available for browsing in the NRP Learning Commons (Parent Reading Group box). Becoming familiar with at least 1 of the suggested books beforehand is encouraged, but not required for participation. Any format is fine, including print, e-book, audio, film, and translated editions.
