Larkspur- The Reading Together Book Group discusses "Fleabrain Loves Franny"
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Group on Sunday, March 29th at 10:30am. This month's selection for kids ages 8-10, is Fleabrain Loves Franny by Joanne Rocklin.
In 1952 Pittsburgh, Franny Katzenback is recovering from polio. She reads and falls in love with a brand-new book, Charlotte's Web. Bored and lonely and yearning for a Charlotte of her own, Franny starts up a correspondence with an eloquent flea named Fleabrain who lives on her dog's tail.
Reading Together is a special kind of book group designed to bring together kids and parents through, you guessed it, books! Once a month, we'll get together and discuss a book that you have each read.
Note to the kids: Your parents can read some boring stuff! Help them out with something good.
Note to the parents: This is a guilt-free way to read some fantastic, accessible, funny/action-packed/moving literature and share in your kids' reading adventures!
