Kid's Group Reads James and the Giant Peach for October 19th


Kid's Group Reads "James and the Giant Peach" for October 19, 2016
Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is the next read for the Book Bunch crew.  Book Bunchers in grades 3-5 meet Wednesday, October 19th at 4:00PM for a discussion of the book followed by a short activity.

Books are available in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
When James Henry Trotter accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it's as big as a house. Then James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit, and when he crawls inside, he meets a bunch of marvelous oversized friends — Old Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, Miss Spider, and more.

After years of feeling like an outsider in the house of his despicable Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, James has finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the exciting adventure begins!

About the Book 
At the dawn of the eighteenth century, when girls stay home and sew while men saidl the high seas finding adventure, danger and gold, two unusual girls, Nancy Kington and Minerva Sharpe, one a rich merchant's daughter, the other her plantation slave, set sail from Jamaica on a ship the crew renames Deliverance. Not just any trading ship, Deliverance flies black flags from its mast and proclaims to all that the new ship is a pirate vessel, sriking fear into the hearts of those she approaches. Or so they hope.

For Nancy, Deliverance is her escape from an arranged marriage with a controlling and devlish man. For Minerva, it is escape from slavery, as well as from the fearsome overseer on Nancy's family plantation. But in the end, the money, the adventure, the companionship and the chance to see the world not as women, but as fearsome pirates, is an opportunity neither can deny.
