CANCELED – Parent and Child Book Club: Juana & Lucas

In accordance with recommendations from public health officials to cancel non-essential gatherings, this program has been canceled. Look for a rescheduled date soon.

Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Grades 2-3 with an adult

Do you love graphic novels? Are you in grades 3-5? Join us as we discuss Juana & Lucas by Juana Medina.

Juana loves many things — drawing, eating Brussels sprouts, living in Bogotá, Colombia, and especially her dog, Lucas, the best amigo ever. She does not love wearing her itchy school uniform, solving math problems, or going to dance class. And she especially does not love learning the English. Why is it so important to learn a language that makes so little sense? But when Juana’s abuelos tell her about a special trip they are planning–one that Juana will need to speak English to go on–Juana begins to wonder whether learning the English might be a good use of her time after all.

Copies of the book are available at the Library Services Desk.

Book | Audiobook CD
