Hampton Falls Free Library Event Calendar
|Time:||4:00 PM -|
|Title:||The "I Survived" Book Club, Recommended for Grades 1-4|
|Description:||The meetings are via Zoom on the third Tuesday of each month at 4:00 pm.
The "I Survived" series is an early introduction to historical fiction. From the eruption of Pompeii to the 2018 California wildfires, each story stands alone and follows a young person who finds themselves in the midst of a historical event or disaster. Each month we read one book in the series and discuss what we learned from the book, our favorite moments, and how we might react under similar circumstances.
June 15: I Survived The Nazi Invasion, 1944 by Lauren Tarshis.
In a Jewish ghetto, Max Rosen and his sister Zena struggle to live after their father is taken away by the Nazis. With barely enough food to survive, the siblings make a daring escape from Nazi soldiers into the nearby forest.
Max and Zena are brought to a safe camp by Jewish resistance fighters. But soon, bombs are falling all around them. Can Max and Zena survive the fallout of the Nazi invasion?
Copies of the books are available at the Library. Email Miss Leah for a zoom link.
