Come join us for our second annual children’s book discussion in Mt. Prospect’s newly restored original one-room schoolhouse on Saturday, February 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Children in grades 3-5 will discuss the Newberry Medal awarded Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan while snacking on a prairie lunch (provided).
“We are excited to continue our children’s book discussion series in the Central School,” says Deborah Rittle, local teacher and member of the Society’s Living History program. The one room school is located on the grounds of the Mount Prospect Historical Society. (103 S. Maple) “Sarah is the embodiment of the pioneer spirit that made communities like ours thrive.”
Participants will read the book beforehand and come ready to chat a little about the story. (The book has a Lexile level of 660L.)
