Book Club

Here it is, the book for our first dissuasion group. Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Heidi is a heart warming story of a little girls love of nature and her adventurous spirit. We follow her life starting in the Swiss Alps and later in Frankfurt. And meet some interesting people along the way. Come join us in her adventures.
This book is a 5th grade level book, but don't let that stop you. All are welcome to participate in the book discussion group, if you read the book. If you have a reluctant readers or the book is a little difficult here are some suggestion to be able to join in the fun.
Read the book to your child.
Audio books. They are great to have in the car when your out and about.
Have a older sibling read it to a younger sibling.
I will be sending out discussion question soon. Along with the date and place of meeting for the end of December. Please shot me an e-mail if you want to join, so I can get this info to you. Also if you have small children. There was a fabulous idea to have story time with the younger readers while the older readers work. I bet we can even find a young readers Heidi. So much fun. Lastly please remember that this book has been in publish for many years and has been revised to many times. We ask that you try to get the book by the above author.
Thank you can wait to get started. Selena

Portland Museums

Tuesday, November 17th we will be heading to the Portland Children's and Portland Art Museums. You can join us for both or either one, your choice.

We will head to the Portland Children's Museum first. Plan to be there a few minutes before 10am. If you would like to follow someone, we will be meeting at the River Church at 8:30am. The museum is geared for children 10 and under, but fun will be had by all I'm sure. Cost is $6.00 per person.

Next we are off to the Portland Art Museum. We are scheduled to be there at 1pm. The art museum is right next door to the children's museum. At the art museum we will divide into groups by grade/age (preschool-2nd, 2rd-5th, 6th-9th), we will then have a guided tour that should last about an hour. At the end of the tour you are welcome to explore the museum on your own. Cost FREE!!!
Please let Elizabeth J know asap if you are planning to join us.
