About the Event

Story Bites Book Club is our inclusive book club for children aged 7 - 11 years (KS2)

We meet in the emporium on the second Sunday of the month to discuss a book that the group have read or listened to before the session. During the session we explore the book through games, activities and discussion. Each month there is a choice of book, one with an interest age of 7 - 9 and the other with an interest age of 9+.  We encourage the children to choose books based on interest age rather than ability as we find they get more out of the activities this way.

Books are available to collect from the emporium a month before the session, or they can be posted out to you.

Parents do not stay for this event. All of our staff are enhanced DBS checked.

About the books:

The Council of Good Friends by Nikesh Shukla

Vinay, Musa, Inua and Nish are best friends. Nothing can separate them... until one day when Vinay's cousin comes to invade his bunk bed haven (i.e. share his room). When a prank war starts, can the friends remember what really matters?

A funny and heart-warming story from award-winning author Nikesh Shukl and filled with fun illustrations by Rochelle Falconer, The Council of Good Friends is full of both hilarious mayhem and caring moments of friendship.

The Stolen Songbird by Judith Eagle

It's 1950s London and Caro Monday and her friends have become embroiled in a dangerous art heist! When Caro Monday's mother disappears on one of her jaunts, she has no choice but to go and stay with a miserable woman that she's never met. Not only that but she's told that her beloved rabbit, His Nibs, is not allowed to go with her. Luckily, Caro's not one for following rules.  With her rabbit in hiding, and her wild behaviour getting her into trouble as soon as she walks through the door, Caro is only going to find herself in deeper water. In the lining of her suitcase is a small but extraordinary painting of a thrush, a painting that some dangerous art thieves are hunting down! Can Caro and her friends solve the mystery of the stolen songbird and find its owners before it's too late? Here ensues an exciting dash across London, with twists and turns as plentiful as the cobbled streets which Caro and her friends must navigate!
