"New Kid" - The Great Family Read

"New Kid" - The Great Family Read In-Person

The Great Family Read for the month of January will be New Kid by Jerry Craft! 

Grades 3 to 6 and their family members. Instill a love of literacy by reading together as a family! Each month we’ll choose a high-interest book that both kids and their grownups will enjoy. The title will be available via our Hoopla ebook multi user platform, so each person in the family will be able to borrow their own digital copy of the book at the same time. Register for this program and the library will provide you with discussion questions, information, and fun activities/supplies related to the book that you are welcome to use in making the reading a more engaging experience for your family. 

January 2021’s Great Family Read title is New Kid by Connecticut author/illustrator Jerry Craft. (Available as both an ebook and a digital audiobook via Hoopla. The library also owns several print copies.) This graphic novel tells the story of Jordan Banks, a seventh grade artist who finds himself torn between two worlds and struggling to fit in when his parents enroll him in an academically rigorous, but not very diverse, private school. Winner of the Newbery Medal, Coretta Scott King Author Award, and Kirkus Prize for Young Readers’ Literature, and a current nominee for the Connecticut Nutmeg Book Award.
