Good day, young readers! We are in December, and before we know it, the holidays are going to be upon us! This month is full of adventures and getting ready for the fun that we are looking forward to at the end of the month. Have you filled out your wish list for Santa?
This month, we are reading The Castle In The Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop. Get ready for a magical adventure that will take you to a kingdom in a distant land, a knight looking to reclaim his lost kingdom, and a young boy trying to get through a trying time in life. It is a grand adventure, just waiting for you to come along!
In January, we are going to be reading “The Call of the Wild” by Jack London. We are going to head into Gold Rush country and take a walk on the wild side! Are you ready to dive into this fabulous book!? I cannot wait to hear what you think about this classic tale!
First published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is regarded as Jack London’s masterpiece. Based on London’s experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness and his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, The Call of the Wild is a tale about unbreakable spirit and the fight for survival in the frozen Alaskan Klondike.
