The Clackity
by Lora Senf:

This eerie middle grade novel is a story of a girl who must enter a world of ghosts, witches, and monsters to rescue her aunt, a local paranormal expert. Evie’s aunt has given her one very important rule, “Stay out of the slaughterhouse at the edge of town”, but when her aunt disappears in the building, will she find the courage to rescue her?

City of Bones: Book 1 of The Mortal Instruments Series
by Cassandra Clare:

Meet Clary Fray, who finds herself pulled into the world of Shadowhunters, humans who hunt and kill demons, when her mother is kidnapped. Jocelyn, her mother, an erstwhile Shadowhunter, is the only one who knows where The Mortal Cup is. This dangerous, magical item turns humans into Shadowhunters. Clary must help the Shadowhunters find the cup before it falls into the wrong hands.  This series has everything fantasy readers love: angels, demons, vampires, werewolves, faeries, true love, and epic battles. The characters are truly brilliant.

The foundation of this program consists of five categories: Read, Play, Talk, Write, Sing.  You and your child will complete activities of your choosing in these categories.  Something as simple as singing your favorite song in the car counts as an activity completed.
Let’s get started!

  • Each time you complete an activity in a set category fill in your circle.
  • Once you have all of your circles in all five categories filled in bring your sheet to library.
    • Your child will receive a free book for each completed sheet.
    • Collect your next sheet for your next set of 50 activities.
  • After finishing all 10 sheets your child will receive a special certificate and a book.  By the end of the program your child will have received 11 books.
