Decemeber/January Book Post – Al Capone Does My Shirts

Hello everyone! We had another successful meeting last night. I’m already excited for the next one!

Our next book is Al Capone Does My Shirts, by Gennifer Choldenko. Like Hatchet, it is a Newbery Honor book. It is also our first historical fiction story.

Who will be the first guy to write on the blog? Brendan’s dad wrote on it for our first book, but none of our kid guys yet! Being first is exciting!

This book is a little longer than our previous selections. You have the rest of December and most of January to read it, but start sooner rather than later. And don’t forget to take it home over Winter Break!

See you soon! Keep reading!

  1. We had another successful meeting last night. Attending were Brendan and his dad and Tyler and his Grandma. We had a lot to talk about, but our main topics were Natalie and autism, Alcatraz, and Piper. That Piper! Yeesh!

    And we had lemon cake, of course!

    Tyler and Brendan both got an assignment: To recruit at least one new member to the club. Double points for fifth graders!

    I’m looking forward to next month!
