Summer Reading List: “King for a Day, the Story of Stories”

When Carter and Russell forget their story for a jamboree, they have only one day to write a new one. Soon a pair of unexpected characters enter to ruin the day and a remarkable adventure ensues, leaving the pair with an unexpected reward. A heartwarming tale that begins at home, this wonderfully illustrated book teaches young readers about friendship, integrity, and self-discovery, encouraging them to create their own stories using the tools within themselves. Also woven within the tale is practical advice for how to write a story, detailing how to write a fictional piece, create a page layout, and design characters.

King for a Day, the Story of Stories is part of our Summer Reading List for Students! Purchase your own or check the book out at the local library. If it’s not available at the library, request it be added.
