The Highland Park Library is celebrating the end of its “Fizz Boom Read!” summer reading club at Prather Park at 10 a.m. Friday with science-themed activities and snacks.
All summer children have used a reading log to keep track of the number of books they’ve read or read with someone. After logging 10 titles, kids received a certificate and a book was donated in their honor to Readers2Leaders.
I’ll be at the park presenting “My Homework Ate My Dog” with author Kent Smith. I illustrated the children’s book last fall with Smith, who was one of my journalism teachers at Highland Park High School.
Hope to see you there!
