Kids Read Picks presents book reviews and recommendations from kids in Mesa County. Don’t be surprised if you can’t find some of these books at the library or in stores: kids who attend Kids Read Book Club on Tuesdays at 4:00 at the Central Library have access to books before they are officially published.

When they go to the school library Penny, a student who is very, very sleepy because she has a new baby brother at home, is missing!! There is a new kid named Margot, who is looking for a new friend. She makes a friend, Sampson, on the bus who she might have just something in common with. Aziza just want’s everyone to be quiet and do their work.”
