Books & Bites Book Club - Measuring Up

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

Join our book club for fourth and fifth graders and read the graphic novel Measuring Up by Lily LaMotte. At the event we’ll talk about the book, have a snack, and do a fun book-related activity. Sign up here, then come to the Library and pick up a free copy of the book, while supplies last. Fourth and fifth graders only.

What’s this book about? Twelve-year-old Cici has just moved from Taiwan to Seattle, and the only thing she wants more than to fit in at her new school is to celebrate her grandmother, A-má’s, seventieth birthday together. Since she can’t go to A-má, Cici cooks up a plan to bring A-má to her by winning the grand prize in a kids’ cooking contest to pay for A-má’s plane ticket! There’s just one problem: Cici only knows how to cook Taiwanese food. And after her pickled cucumber debacle at lunch, she’s determined to channel her inner Julia Child. Can Cici find a winning recipe to reunite with A-má, a way to fit in with her new friends, and somehow find herself too?
