Week 2 (by 7/7) A Charm of Hummingbirds – Chapters 5-8 through page 87
The most exciting part of any Mayor’s Book Club celebration is the announcement of the next book club title! Drum roll, please…The Mayor Buddy’s Book Club will be reading Becoming Naomi Leon by Pam Munoz Ryan.
You can always get a free copy of the book from the Orange County Library System. They will even deliver it right to your door. Call 407.835.7323 to request a copy of Become Naomi Leon or request it online.
Our newest book in Mayor Buddy’s Book Club is Heat, by Mike Lupica. In this book, we meet a young baseball player named Michael Arroyo who is growing up in the Bronx with dreams of playing in Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, there’s something standing in his way.
Read along with us and save the date for our next End of Book Party on Wednesday, June 20th. As always, it will be awesome.
In cased you missed the awesome event we had yesterday with author Cynthia Lord you may want to know what we are going to read next?

In preparation for next week’s End of Book Party on Wednesday, May 16th at 3:30pm at the Downtown Library, we’ve posted a survey for Rules which can be found here. http://www.orlandocares.net/bookclub/survey.html Fun prizes will be given to 2 random participants so take the survey today!
Also, don’t forget that Cynthia Lord, author of Rules, will be coming to next week’s End of Book Party, so bring your copy for her to sign!
- What do you think the book will be about, based on the cover? What about the title?
- When you hear the word “rules”, how do you feel and what comes to mind?
- Think of some rules for your own life. What rules do your parents have for you? Do your teachers have rules in class?
- Are rules necessary in some situations? When are rules a good thing? When can rules be a negative thing?
- Do you have rules for yourself? Your brothers or sisters?
To make this happen we have had to change the previously scheduled date of Mayor Buddy’s Book Club event. It will now be held one week later. Don’t miss it!
