Keep your kids reading this summer!  Crafty Readers is a new series of two-day reading clubs that is sure to appeal to book lovers and readers ages 8-11. Crafty readers will discuss a chosen chapter book and engage in book-related activities including making crafts and snacks, and engage with the book in a variety of fun ways. Readers will also keep a writing journal for discussion points, reflective writing, or artistic interpretation of reading that they can show off during book club. This will be a real page turner of a camp! Be sure to reserve a place before we're all booked up!

Thorfinn comes from a long line of ferocious, rampaging Vikings... But Thorfinn is a peace-loving, tea-drinking, jam-making thoroughly nice Viking. The first book introduces Thorfinn and explains how he got his Viking name (Thorfinn the Very-Very-Nice-Indeed)
