In this course, Bud, Not Buddy Online Book Club for Kids, we will read through the book Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. As we are reading, we will go on rabbit trails of discovery into history, music, slang terms, and more. We will find ways to learn by experiencing parts of the book through hands-on activities and more.
We will add a little magic dust you will want to sing about.
At the conclusion of the story we will have a party school that is worth packing for.
Join us on an adventure into this humorous and heart-felt book about life growing up as an orphan in the Great Depression.
