Kia Ora Koutou BookSeekers!
We had a Mysterious May session this month! We welcomed Lydia as a new member and had a great time with the whole BookSeekers group.
BookSeekers detectives spied our Libraries’ KIDS website and solved the enigmas of a secret quiz!
We looked at Mystery themed books in our libraries. We discussed the Mystery genre : What do Mystery books have in common? How can we guess from the cover whether it is a mystery book? Then each of us picked up 3 cards from the Cluedo game : a character, a weapon and a place of murder and we invented a Mystery story. It was a wonderfully creative and inspirational moment.
BookSeekers reviewed some Mystery books too : Tess gave 10 Stars out of 10 for The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill; David gave 4 Stars out of 5 for The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan David and Alexandra gave 9 stars out of 10 for The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. They recommended their books for kids who like Mysteries and explained they were good books because each page surprises the reader about what is happening.
BookSeekers’ theme next month will be books about art. Children’s picture books and sophisticated picture books sometimes challenge your thinking changing an original painting and including it in a story. We are sure you will enjoy discovering how much fun it is! Don’t miss it! Our next meeting is June 14th, 2012 4 -5pm Kilbirnie Library.
Ka Kite BookSeekers!
