April Kid Readers Unite a Graphic Novel: Four Eyes by Rex Ogle

Tuesday, April 16 at 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

When and where is the meeting?

Tuesday April 16th,  4:30-5:30pm IN PERSON @ the Library, 2nd Floor, Group Study 4 Room

This month’s title: Four Eyes by Rex Ogle

Registration is required.

The first 10 kids who sign up and attend this program will get a free Advance Reader Copy of the book! Limited space & copies available.
If you are on the waitlist and you get your own copy of the book (from another library or purchase a copy) you can attend.


Who is the event for? This group is only for those in grades 4, 5, and 6.

This is based on the content and interest level of the books being read and not reading level.  The group is intended to allow peers in the same grade/age group to discuss books together. There is a strong focus on peer interaction and opinion based discussion and sharing of ideas.

What is this book about?   

A humorous and heartwarming middle-grade graphic memoir about fitting in, facing bullies, and finding the right pair of glasses.

Sixth grade isn’t as great as Rex thought it would be. He’s the only kid who hasn’t had a growth spurt, and the bullies won’t let him forget it. His closest friend is unreliable, at best. And there’s a cute girl in his class who he can’t stop thinking about. With so much going on, everything is a blur — including Rex’s vision! So when he discovers that he needs glasses, and his family can only afford the ugliest pair in the store, any hope Rex had of fitting in goes completely out of focus.

In this true coming-of-age story, Rex has his sights set on surviving sixth grade, but now he’s got to find a way to do it with glasses, no friends, and a family that just doesn’t get it!
