Finding Gobi: Young Readers Edition

This winter, Garden City Middle School will run an all-school book program called One School, One Book. Through One School, One Book, GCMS aims to build a Community of Readers.

This program is voluntary and participants will have to acquire their own copies of the selected book, however, everyone – students, teachers, and administrators are encouraged to follow along together. Parents are also encouraged to follow along and discuss the book with their children at home.

Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dogs Big Journey by Dion Leonard was chosen as this year's One School, One Book winner.

A recommended reading schedule will be posted on the One School, One Book website to help participants keep up with the reading at home. Participating students will respond to online discussion questions and are invited to a face to face book discussion to take place after school on March 20th.

The choices for this year's program are below.
