Last Tuesday night, Snacktime Readers met to talk about this month's book, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit. There's lots to talk and think about in this book long after you are finished reading it.

What if you could live forever? Would you want to? Keep in mind if everyone did how would our planet support them? Also consider how it would be to stay the same even though your friends were getting older and older and really old. That's the dilemma that the author presents the reader and to a ten-year-old girl named Winnie. What did she choose to do, drink from the spring with the special water or grow up in the usual manner? What would you do?

Readers in the group really liked this one and as is our tradition gave it a rating (10 is the highest) and made a comment:
Eusenia - 10.5 - Great!
Celina - 9 - Reading good even though it felt old and I like more modern stories.
Allisyn - 9 - It's a classic and wonderfully written but just when I was really getting into it ended.

Join the group next month, May 26, 7:00 p.m. , Glendale Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale, CA 91205. For grades 4-8 and their parents. For additional information please call, (818) 548-2035. We are reading Pandora Gets Jealous by Carolyn Hennesy.
