Canton Public Library
Wednesday, Dec. 12, 6:30 p.m.
Register Online or call --860-693-5800.

December's Jr. Book Club read is  My Life in Pictures by Deborah Zemke, the first in the Bea Garcia book series. In the mold of favorites Judy Moody and Amelia’s Notebook, author/illustrator Zemke has thought up an authentic and funny main character in Bea Garcia. Bea draws and doodles about all the important things in her life, exploring events and expressing her feelings. When her best friend moves to Australia and a loud boy moves in next door, at first even her art doesn’t help. 

 Read the book ahead of time and join in the discussion with Children’s Programmer Sarah Prattson. At the close of the program, we’ll offer the next book in the series to take home. Includes a snack and a book-themed craft.

For kids entering grades 1 & up or with Ms. Sarah's "okay." 

 Free; registration is required, either by phone or on our "Upcoming Programs" section of the website.  Space is limited.
Canton Public Library is at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton. Information: call (860) 693-5800, email or visit
