2nd Grade Guys Read Alvin Ho

Wow! Over 30 second grade guys met for the first Parish Guys Book Club lunch in the library. Alvin Ho Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things inspired some fantastic conversation! The guys made their own list of things that they were "allergic to." They talked about possible superhero names. We watched a quick advertisement for Johnny Astro, the toy that Alvin's dad loved when he was a boy.

The guys made so many connections with Alvin, and it seems that everyone is sure that they want to read the new book in the series, Alvin Ho:Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters.
Wordle - Guys again: "Wordle: Guys again"

This wordle shows some of the things that the guys find scary. The larger the word, the more often it was listed. Click on the wordle for a closer look!


  1. Becky, this is fantastic! I've already tried your open book clubs a few times and love them. Thanks for sharing all the details of what you did with this one. Must find that book. :)

  2. I love the wordle. Girls can be scary:)
