Banner

Are you 9 to 12 years old? Come join our online book club! Try different books and discuss them with other readers. This month we're reading George by Alex Gino. Tune in live on March 11 or watch the replay!

In this book, Melissa feels a deep connection with Charlotte from Charlotte's Web. Have you read this classic by E.B. White? If not, read the book or watch the movie and see which character you relate to the most. If you already know the story, draw a picture or write a poem about your favourite character.

Here are some more questions to guide your reading:

  • What does transgender mean? To learn more, check out our Reading with Pride booklist!
  • Why does Melissa really want to play the role of Charlotte in the school play?
  • Who do you think had the most positive reaction to finding out Melissa was a girl?
