The World According to Humphrey Book JacketJoin us for a fun new program this Spring. It’s called “My Family Reads,” and is especially for kids age 7 – 11 and their families. We’ll be reading The World According to Humphrey by Betty J. Birney!

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That’s what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy is it true! There are always adventures in the classroom and each weekend he gets to sleep over with a different student, like Lower-Your-Voice-A.J. and Speak-Up Sayeh. Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course), and much more. With a lock-that-doesn’t-lock and an adventurous spirit, Humphrey’s life would be perfect if only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasn’t out to get him?

Sign up starting Monday April 16 to join other families in reading this delightful book and to attend the following special events.

Kickoff Event Monday April 23 6:30 pm
