Meet Eric Berlin

Welcome to Family Book Club! This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the third to sixth grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading "The Puzzling World of Winston Breen" by Eric Berlin. This is a fun mystery, full of puzzles that you can solve along with Winston, and the prize is treasure! Below is a suggested reading schedule. Every Monday, visit this blog to help guide your reading!

Chapters 1-5
- Do you like solving puzzles? Do you prefer letter or number puzzles or riddles?  
- Have you been able to solve any of the puzzles so far? (Remember the answers are at the back of book!) 
- Do you have any guesses as to what the birthday box puzzle means? 
- Why did Mrs. Lewis get so upset when she saw the puzzle pieces? 
- Do you think David North and Mickey Glowacka are trustworthy? 
- It is nice that Winston and Katie’s dad is on board with the treasure hunt plan. Do you think they will be safe? 

Next week read chapters 6-10! 

We will be having a special virtual event on March 29 at 5 p.m. to meet the author! Register here to receive the WebEx link.

This event is in collaboration with Jefferson County Public Library and their Young Reader's Book Club. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the Tallyn's Reach Library. Please call 303.627.3050 if you'd like to put one on hold to be picked up at a different branch. Copies are also available through JCPL and Prospector.
