June 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
Description: Oliver B. Hill hatches a plan to make big bucks, by catching frogs and selling them to a local restaurant. He enlists his cousin, Maggie, to help with “Operation Hopper.” However, they encounter problems during their frog hunt. Other Oakland Acres’ kids figure out how to shoo a raccoon family out of the attic, how to stop a snack snatching hound from stealing pizza, and how long a magic spell lasts. However, they need the readers’ help to solve their most important problem! Second through fourth-grade readers will enjoy this collection of twelve short stories. They also enjoy adding their own tales using the writing prompts at the end of the book. Parents and teachers can deepen students’ reading experience with the companion discussion guide. The guide emphasizes comprehension and the figurative language used throughout the book.
