Black Eyed Susan Book Club

Black Eyed Susan Book Club

 Each year the state of Maryland issues a list of books for children to read and they vote on which book is their favorite. We have a club that meets each month and discusses each book on the list. Students read the books at home and after we have read all the books, we send our choice as favorite to the state. Maryland is the only state that has this program. Here is the list of books for next year (2017-2018). We have two copies of each book in the school library and the public library also has the books. They may also be purchased at Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.  Please encourage your 4th and 5th grader to participate.
