August

The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens is similar to Magic Tree House books. Two sisters and one brother have to travel back in time to save one another and a town full of children to change the course of history for the better. Can they make the right decisions and avoid tragedy along the way? Or will their decisions make their time even worse?

 

Join us on August 24th!
