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 book:
Diamond Jack: Your Magic or Your Life by Anna Rainbow
While helping in Grandpa's shop, Bramble discovers a strange scarlet mask. A tingling in her fingers tells her to try it on, but when she does she can't take it off... And when she looks in the mirror, the face of a famous highwayman Diamond Jack stares back. It seems Bramble has been chosen for a mission. Time to stand and deliver - your magic or your life!
The Silver Road by Sinead O'Hart
Myth and magic combine in this unforgettable adventure drawing on Irish folklore, from award-winning author SinÃ©ad O'Hart. The seandraiocht - the Old Magic - isn't remembered like it once was. Its power is fading... When Rose is entrusted with a powerful stone by a Frost Giant, she is swept into an adventure full of danger. The stone can be used for great good or great evil, depending on its keeper. It leads Rose to discover the magic that runs through all of Ireland. A magic that is threaded together beneath the land: the Silver Road. But the Silver Road is under threat. Now Rose must keep the stone from falling into the wrong hands and embark on a quest to find its rightful owner and keep the magic alive.
