Nonfiction Smackdown! (Grades 4-5)

Nonfiction Smackdown! (Grades 4-5)

Are you a kid who loves learning new things? Do you devour books about TRUE things like nature, history, geography, and science? Join our Nonfiction Smackdown club to read and vote: Whose facts will reign supreme?!?!

Each month you'll read 2 or 3 nonfiction titles assigned by your fearless leader, Librarian Ashley. When we get together for our monthly meeting, we'll discuss the books, loosely using the nonfiction Sibert Medal criteria. Then we'll vote and decide which one we think is the BEST. At our January meeting, we'll have one big vote to see which book was our ultimate favorite and rank all the titles.

Nonfiction Smackdown is for kids in grades 4-5. Snacks will be provided, and assigned books will be placed on hold for club participants. When you register, you are signing up for all 5 monthly meetings.

This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Reading Public Library. Thank you, Friends!
