Children’s Literature Network (CLN) and Stevens Memorial Library in North Andover co-host the Massachusetts chapter of CLN’s innovative Chapter & Verse Book Club.
Chapter & Verse is a national book club for members of Children’s Literature Network and other children’s literature enthusiasts in their communities who wish to discuss children’s and young adult fiction, nonfiction, picture books, and poetry. The book clubs are a haven for adults who enjoy reading books written for children and teenagers. Anne Broyles, author, and Marina Salenikas, children’s librarian, will facilitate the discussions.
This month’s selections are Turn Left at the Cow by Lisa Bullard; Moo! by David LaRochelle, illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka; and It’s Milking Time by Phyllis Alsdurf, illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. All things cow! One is a middle grade mystery set in Minnesota; one is a nearly wordless picture book set wherever cows are found; and the third is a picture book about life on the farm.
Please bring suggestions for your other favorite books about cows and farms.
