One Tuesday, I went to the Mountain View library to do the adventure theme. A volunteer told me to make a name tag and go into the community room where the organizer and librarian Sharon McClintock welcomed me. I gave her my project that was about the book I picked to read from the READ Quest booklist. Around 20 kids were there at the the library and there were several helpful volunteers. I saw a table of adventure books that were already provided for us to pick.
First, we introduced ourselves and we also talked about our hobbies.
Second, Ms. McClintock read a folktale about pirates to us. A high school student played a violin to to go with the story. Third, we did some drama and put on crazy costumes. Then we did pirate moves.
When it was time to go, I found a book, "Island of the Blue Dolphin,'' that was already provided in the community room. Several weeks ago, I wanted to get the book, but I couldn't find it. Now I have it!
On Saturday when my family went to the library, I proudly showed them the project I did!
At first, I thought I wouldn't like adventure books, but after the theme, I liked them much more. I recommend this program to ages 7 to 9.
