The FYCC After-school Program Would Like To Know… What Was Your First Chapter Book?

FYCC at Green Apple Bookstore

Paul from the GLIDE Family, Youth and Childcare Center (FYCC) after-school program is getting kids excited about reading chapter books and he needs your help.  Tell us what your FIRST chapter book was to show the kids that you remember the daunting, challenging, scary and exhilarating quest of picking up your first book that was NOT a picture book.  You can just tell us the title, or you can share a little something about how it changed your life to become a reader!
Paul:  My First was “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” by CS Lewis.  It was scary, but I was so proud of myself for doing it, that I rushed right through all seven “Chronicles of Narnia”.

Paul’s class took a field trip to Green Apple Bookstore this summer, where each kid received a copy of “The Phantom Tollbooth” and “The Lightning Thief.” Since then, all of the kids have picked out chapter books they would like to read, and the FYCC is partnering with Green Apple Bookstore to get the books for the class.
