Nutmeg Narwhals Book Club

Tuesday July 26 2022 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

For the summer meeting we will read “The Floating Field” by Scott Riley!

About the book:

“After watching the World Cup on television, a group of Thai boys is inspired to form their own team. But on the island of Koh Panyee, in a village built on stilts, there is no open space. The boys can play only twice a month on a sandbar when the tide is low enough. Everything changes when the teens join together to build their very own floating soccer field.
This inspiring true story by debut author Scott Riley is gorgeously illustrated by Nguyen Quang and Kim Lien. Perfect for fans of stories about sports, beating seemingly impossible odds, and places and cultures not often shown in picture books.”


We’ll be meeting indoors in the community room.

A copy of the book is available for pickup at the children’s desk on the 2nd floor, beginning Tuesday, July 12th. (2 weeks prior)

When: Tues. July 26 from 4:00-5:00pm

Who: Open to children entering grades 1-3 only.
