June 2021 Grades 1 & 2 Book Club Suggestions


Dory Fantasmagory by Abby Hanlon

"As the youngest in her family, Dory really wants attention, and more than anything she wants her brother and sister to play with her. But she's too much of a baby for them, so she's left to her own devices—including her wild imagination and untiring energy. Her siblings may roll their eyes at her childish games, but Dory has lots of things to do: outsmarting the monsters all over the house, moving into the closet, and exacting revenge on her sister's favorite doll. And when they really need her, daring Dory will prove her bravery, and finally get exactly what she has been looking for." — summary

My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett

"When Elmer Elevator hears about the baby dragon being held captive on Wild Island, he knows just what to do. First, he packs his knapsack with important supplies, like chewing gum, lollipops, and lots of rubber bands. Then he stows away on a ship headed for the island. Along the way, Elmer meets many exotic animals. Each tries to sidetrack him, but Elmer has some tricks up his sleeve...or more precisely, in his knapsack. One way or another, he will rescue the dragon!" — summary

"Baron von Bubbles, or Bub, likes fashion, peanut butter, and his human—Bella. When Bella enters the inventor challenge at school, Bub wants to help her make the best project ever! But, then, Bub ruins Bella's project by mistake. Oh, no! Can he ever make it up to her?" — summary
