Book Club for Kids – Mercy Watson to the Rescue

July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

YOUTH (Grades K-5, Ages 5-10)

Who says book clubs are only for adults? Join us for an early chapter book club where we will discuss Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson to the Rescue. Books will be available to pick up starting June 16th.

We will discuss the book and make buttered toast (IYKYK!)

Not a fluent reader yet? That’s OK – find a grown up to read with you or find an audio book version to listen to while you play.

About the book

From the one and only Kate DiCamillo comes an irresistible hero for early chapter book readers, brightly captured with comic nostalgic flair by Chris Van Dusen.

To Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig – she’s a porcine wonder. And to the portly and good-natured Mercy, the Watsons are an excellent source of buttered toast, not to mention that buttery-toasty feeling she gets when she snuggles into bed with them. This is not, however, so good for the Watsons’ bed. BOOM! CRACK! As the bed and its occupants slowly sink through the floor, Mercy escapes in a flash – “to alert the fire department,” her owners assure themselves. But could Mercy possibly have another emergency in mind – like a sudden craving for their neighbors’ sugar cookies? Welcome to the wry and endearing world of Mercy Watson – an ebullient character for early chapter-book readers in a series that’s destined to be a classic.
