Hey Kids! It is time to start another journey into the land of fairy tales and adventure! This month we are going through the book “Eragon” by Christopher Paolini. If you have been following the book club for a while, then you will remember the first few Land of Stories books that we have read. Now, we are going to go into book four, and see what happens next! I have been dying to read the next one – the adventure is just getting better and better! Chris Colfer brings us “Beyond The Kingdom” and we are going to find a fabulous adventure! Get ready for July!!
Reading is really important. I don’t know if I can stress just how essential it is to read over the summer. When you are going through the school year, did you know that reading can help to increase your vocabulary AND give you a boost on other knowledge that can help you? Reading is more than just finding a great story – it is helping to train your brain and keep you engaged. How amazing is that?
Check your on post and off post libraries to see if they are doing some summer reading programs. There are usually some fabulous rewards and prizes that you can get just for reading! Get your summer reading on!!
Beyond the Kingdoms excerpt from Goodreads.com:
The Masked Man is on the loose in the Land of Stories, and it’s up to Alex and Conner Bailey to stop him…except Alex has been thrown off the Fairy Council, and no one will believe they’re in danger.
With only the help of the ragtag group of Goldilocks, Jack, Red Riding Hood, and Mother Goose and her gander, Lester, the Bailey twins discover the Masked Man’s secret scheme: He possesses a powerful magic potion that turns every book it touches into a portal, and he is recruiting an army of literature’s greatest villains!
So begins a race through the magical Land of Oz, the fantastical world of Neverland, the madness of Wonderland, and beyond. Can Alex and Conner catch up to the Masked Man, or will they be one step behind until it’s too late?
Fairy tales and classic stories collide in the fourth adventure in the bestselling Land of Stories series as the twins travel beyond the kingdoms!
