QuailKids  #619 January 4, 2019

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and enjoyed ringing in 2019. With our latest Angel Tree, we experienced an abundance of generosity and would like to thank each and every one of you who participated. The children who received your donations were overjoyed!

On another note, if your child absolutely loved a book this season, please let us know and send a review to kids@quailridgebooks.com. We will feature kids' reviews-- like the ones below-- in our store!
"Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down! The plot - an epic quest - was suspenseful and fun at the same time. My favorite character was Wish because her life is really interesting and she's brave, plus she has a cool secret."

- Violet, age 9

"This book hooked me right from the first sentence. The story's magic, fun and creativity captivated me because it was so unlike the real world and a realistic life."

- Naomi, age 10

"Full of magic. Lots of unexpected twists from characters. This is like nothing I have ever read before. But it's not a very light read."

- Chaitanya, age 10

Meet Young Writers!
Garner Magnet HS Students
Friday, January 18, 7:00 pm  
All ages

A group of young writers based at Garner Magnet High School recently published their first book. It explores their personal narrative through the genres of poetry, essays, letters, memoirs, and more. More importantly, their work explores their experiences as first generation and immigrant students in our community.

Books will be available for purchase at the event! All proceeds from the purchase of this book goes into a scholarship fund. Because the sales are handled by the kids so they get all the profits, cash is much appreciated.
