We have lots of activities planned to kick off our week of adventures upon the high seas! Join us for stories, pirate mad libs, an exciting pirate craft, and a treasure hunt throughout the store! All crafts and activities will center around concurrent storytimes at 12:45. We'll read Kim Kennedy's PIRATE PETE'S TALK LIKE A PIRATE in the kids' room for the little ones and present a few exerpts of our reading challenge selections for middle graders and young adults at the front of the store (more about reading challenges below!). Berryhill will provide scrumptious fish tacos, chips and salsa to satiate your little landlubber, so come hungry for a feast fit for the fiercest of foes. Costumes are encouraged - don your favorite pirate garb, practice your ARRRRRRRRRRRs, and help us kick off the best pirate week Houston has ever seen!

The kickoff party is also the perfect time to pick up our middle grade and young adult reading challenge selections! Middle graders (roughly 2nd-6th grade reading levels) can choose either or both THE VERY NEARLY HONORABLE LEAGUE OF PIRATES: MAGIC MARKS THE SPOT by Caroline Carlson and BLUE JAY THE PIRATE by Scott Nash. Young adult readers (roughly 7th -12th graders) can choose either or both FROZEN by Melissa de la Cruz & Michael Johnston and HOSTAGE THREE by Nick Lake. Book discussions of the selections will take place on Friday, March 21st at 2pm for Middle Graders and 4pm for Young Adults. Snacks will be provided. If your reader wants a bit of a head start, all books listed are available in store now!
