EDISON EAGLE BOOK CLUB

 
 

The Edison Eagle Book Club meets every Wednesday at lunch in the library and is sponsored by Ms. Caldarera and Mr. McMahon. Students need to obtain a parent permission slip from the librarian, Ms. Caldarera, to attend. All participating students will have a designated speed pass to allow them to enter the building at lunch. The book club is open to all students and staff, on a first come, first serve basis, but limited to the space available and number of books available (usually 20).

For October we are reading Wait 'Til Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn, "an unusually scary, well-crafted ghost fantasy." Kirkus Reviews

November's book is Wolven by Di Toft. "With his big snaggly teeth, patchy black fur, and glowing golden eyes, Woody is far from the cutest of dogs, yet Nat is strangely drawn to the rough mutt that howls at the moon. And before long Nat discovers that Woody's not a dog at all--he's a wolven: a shape-shifter who changes from wolf to boy without much warning. A secret government agency knows about Woody's mutant status, too, and wants to trap him and turn him into a hairy new breed of bioweapon. To escape capture, and to make sense of Woody's strange identity, the two friends--boy and werewolf--set off on a great adventure." Book synopsis from amazon.com

The Edison Eagle Book Club is sponsoring an Adopt an Eagle project. You can join us in our efforts, bring $.50 to the Library Media Center to enter in a drawing for an eleven inch plush eagle. All proceeds will be given to the World Wildlife organization.

Eagle facts:

"Bald eagles live along the rivers, lakes, marshes, and seacoasts of North America. While fish make up the majority of its diet, the bald eagle will also prey upon other birds and small mammals, such as rabbits. A conservation success story, after being protected under the Endangered Species Act, bald eagle populations in the lower 48 states have been down listed to “threatened.” These majestic birds are still at risk due to habitat loss, toxins, and pollution."
