Homeschool Book Club (6 – 8): Wish

On Tuesday, April 4th at 11:30-12:30, the Homeschool Book Club for 6-8 year olds will be discussing the first half of “Wish” by Barbara O’Connor. We will discuss the 2nd half of the book on Tuesday, April 18th.

This is a touching, New York Times-bestselling story about a girl and her dog, perfect for young animal lovers!

Charlie Reese has been making the same secret wish every day. She even has a list of all the ways there are to make the wish, such as cutting off the pointed end of a slice of pie and wishing on it as she takes the last bite. But when she is sent to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to live with family she barely knows, it seems unlikely that her wish will ever come true. That is until she meets Wishbone, a skinny stray dog who captures her heart, and Howard, a neighbor boy who proves surprising in lots of ways. Suddenly Charlie is in serious danger of discovering that what she thought she wanted may not be what she needs at all.

Copies will be available behind the circulation desk soon. Readers will be notified when they can sign out a copy.

The discussion will be held in the Children’s room. Homeschool students are welcome to sign up with Mrs. Fig. by emailing her at
