What: Book Discussion Group & Art Project
When: Monday, July 22 & Monday, July 29, 6 - 7 p.m.
Who: Kids 3rd grade and up

Where: Children's Auditorium

Students 3rd grade & up, would you like to have a book discussion with a friendly border collie named Lady Mary? Join Lady Mary and educator Kim Schwalbach from PUPS (People Understanding Pets) as you discuss the book The One and Only Bob, by Katherine Applegate, and make an art project based on it.

Plot summary: In this sequel to The One And Only Ivan, a scrappy dog named Bob and his best friends, Ivan the gorilla and Ruby the elephant, undertake a dangerous journey to seek Bob's long-lost sister, but a storm is approaching and time is running out.

Monday, July 22 -- We'll discuss the book.

Monday, July 29 -- We'll make a zoo diorama out of a shoebox, creating whatever you think would be an ideal zoo setting for your favorite animals.

Each participant will receive a free copy of the book to keep.

Space is limited. Advance registration required. Participants are registering to attend both sessions.
After registration, come to the Children's Desk at the Decatur Public Library to pick up your free copy of the book and discussion questions, so you can read it before the discussion on July 22. (The book is also available in print and audiobook in our library catalog, and as e-book or digital audiobook on hoopla.)

The program will be led by Humane Educator Kim Schwalbach from the Decatur & Macon County Animal Shelter Foundation.
