READ Quest! Program
Original post made by Stacy Callahan 7 years old, Mountain View Resident, Blossom Valley, on Jul 14, 2013
One Tuesday, I went to the Mountain View library to do the adventure theme. When I got to the library, I didn't know what to do. A volunteer told me to make a name tag and go into the Community room. In the Community room, the organizer Sharon McClintock who also is a librarian, 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. 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 also we talked about our hobbies.
Second, Sharon McClintock read a folktale about pirates to us. A high school student played a violin to us to go with the story. Third, we did some drama and put on crazy costumes. Then we did pirate moves.
Forth, we were separated into groups. I shared comments about my book ''Hatchet'' to our group. There was something funny. I was going to show them my book, but Benson a volunteer had the book , so we came to listen to him talk about ''Hatchet''. Soon, everybody was listening to Benson.
Last, 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.
