Reigate Chatterbooks 2 have just read Ask Oscar by Andy MacDonald we liked the idea of a dog turning up on our doorstep. We then made our own Oscar from pompoms

This month we read 'Silver Hand' by Terry Deary.
We thought this tale set around the end of the first World War was appropriate with the centenary this year.
French Aimee and German Marius flee from the sinister 'Silver Hand', a British soldier spying for the Germans.                                                                                                                                             
 As it was Christmas we iced gingerbread men and biscuits.

We welcomed new volunteer Anne-Marie!

Weybridge Chatterbooks

Weybridge Chatterbooks have had the first meeting of 2019 and a very lively one it was! We have been together for about 5 months and have read some very different books during that time. The favourite so far has been the Armistice Runner by Tom Palmer. A really good read. We imagined what it would be like for a young man in 1918 running into enemy territory.

At Christmas our group read two books, A Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haigh and Winter Magic a book of short stories about Winter and Christmas. We wrote down our thoughts about both books and decided whether we would recommend them. These reviews will soon be part of a display in the library. Our new book for January is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. We are pretty excited about this book. More news on that in the next blog. If you're interested in joining the group and are in year 4 or 5, we have spaces. Come to the library for more information. Our next meeting is on February 8th at 3:45pm at Weybridge Library.

Reigate library Chatterbooks have just read Noah Scape Can't Stop Repeating Himself by Guy Bass. We had fun deciding what our favorite food was and what our world would be like if there was more than one of us. Then we did some sticking and gluing with spaghetti.

During December Chatterbooks at Haslemere Library really enjoyed reading 'The Polar Bear Explorers' Club' by Alex Bell.  At home we tried out some tasty recipes from Nadiya Hussain's 'Bake Me a Festive Story' and, on Saturday we all made fat balls from her bird feeder recipe.
