Chapter Chat: El Deafo
Chapter Chat is a cool book club for 4th, 5th and 6th graders that meets at the Kimberly Library on the second Tuesday of every month. Strong third grade readers are also welcome. We will have some discussion and other fun activities related to that month's book. Join anytime!
April's selection is El Deafo by CeCe Bell
Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid. A 2015 Newbery Honor Book.
Sign language interpreter Jacqueline Corey will be our special guest and will teach some basic signs.
Copies are available at the main desk starting March 14.
