Young Observer visited Dalton E Tucker last week to meet with the Boys Reading Club. The boys in the club are:

Sterling Brown, age 8

Dominic Every, age 9

Ari Outerbridge, age 9

Mason Robinson, age 9

Wysdem Symonds, age 9

Jaquan Darrell, age 10

O'Niel Moore, age 10

Raphael Rudolph, age 10

Jaize' Smith, age 10

Torrell Stuart, age 10

Rychus Symonds, age 10

The literary works the boys have read so far include:

The Anteater by Roald Dahl (poem)

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume (fiction)

I Survived The Shark Attacks of 1916 by Lauren Tarshis (historical fiction)

The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Robert Browning (poem)

The Biggest Bear by Lynd Ward (children's book fiction)

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein (children's book fiction)

Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr Seuss (children's book fiction)

The boys voted The Pied Piper of Hamelin and I Survived The Shark Attacks of 1916 as their favourites. Teacher Ayesha Brown told Young Observer: “The children's book fiction stories all contained themes with a lot of depth (choices in life, unconditional love and what love really looks like, responsibility and blame, etc), so the boys and I had some thought-provoking debates and discussions “I look forward to them sharing their favourite literary works and their choices for choosing them.”
