September Grades 1 & 2 Book Club Suggestions

Gooney Bird Greene by Lowis Lowry

"There’s never been anyone like Gooney Bird Greene at Watertower Elementary School. What other new kid comes to school wearing pajamas and cowboy boots one day and a polka-dot t-shirt and tutu on another? Gooney Bird has to sit right smack in the middle of the class because she likes to be in the middle of everything. She is the star of storytime and keeps her teacher and classmates on the edge of their seats with her 'absolutely true' stories. But what about her classmates? Do they have stories good enough to share?" —Summary

The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale & Dean Hale

"Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when ... Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia. But luckily Princess Magnolia has a secret -- she's also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her! Can the princess sneak away, transform into her alter ego, and defeat the monster before the nosy duchess discovers her secret?" —Summary

Monster and Boy by Hannah Barnaby

"When Monster (who lives under the bed) meets Boy (who sleeps in the bed), Boy starts to scream, and Monster promptly swallows him. It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship!" —Summary
