We are pleased to announce that we will be starting a new book club, called Spine Crackers, for grades 4-6.
We encourage Churchill students to take the next week or two to settle into their new classrooms and then stop by the library to register for our newest book club. The first book we are reading is The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blakemore. It's a mysterious and magical fantasy book about three loners and their search for the Fountain of Youth.

Space is limited and all participants will receive a free copy of the book, so register soon.
A bit more about the book:
- It received a starred review from Kirkus
- The NY Times said: "What shines through, however, is Blakemore's tender understanding of how these children -- and all children -- feel about their lives and the adults who control them." Read more of the review here.
- Read what other people thought of the book on Goodreads.
- Find it at your library.
