Tweens (ages 9-12), join our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) book club. The group reads books about solving novel problems with engineering and technology. We'll introduce “Shiloh,” by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, with a book trailer and activities. Everyone gets to take a copy of the book home to read.

This is the story of an eleven-year-old boy, Marty, who finds a stray beagle, Shiloh, in the West Virginia hills near his house. Marty learns that Shiloh belongs to a local man named Judd Travers who abuses his hunting dogs. Marty doesn't want to return Shiloh to Travers, so he tries to conceal the dog and care for him in the woods near his home.
