Buddy Read – Week Four!

This is our last week to read Bicycling with Butterflies together before the author answers our extra questions about monarchs and give us the dirt on what it’s like to bicycle from Mexico to Canada and back!

Don’t forget, if you want to read a book inspired by Bicycling with Butterflies, check out the digital collection or call the library 440.333.7610 x5501 for suggestions!

And check out what’s happening on the Children’s Department blog, RRPL Kid’s Depot, where you’ll find even more fun things to try out this Summer!!

Rocky River, are you ready to read together? Us too! Let’s get into it and turn that page

Week Four

Chapters 23-31

1. Are you looking at all the creatures in your garden and in the woods a little differently now? Have you been inspired to do some of your own research on any caterpillars or beetles you’ve seen?

2. At this point, the author has moved many creatures out of harm’s way. Have you ever stopped to help a skunk, a turtle, or a caterpillar find a safer path than the one they were on, or would you consider it now?

3. Did you feel the tension growing when the author gave the potential risks and rewards for where eggs are laid during the pre-migration phases of the monarch’s journey? Based on everything you’ve read; do you have a guess at which approach might increase the rate of survival?

4. The author writes, “The more we know, the more we know just how much we don’t know.” With so many new ideas introduced in this book, are you feeling more empowered to make small changes or large ones? Has one of the topics discussed caught your attention, intriguing you enough to dig deeper into what you can find?

Programs happening soon:
