Slide 1: Hi! My name is Kate Narita. I’m the author of 100 Bugs! A Counting Book and a fourth grade teacher. Today is day eleven of my summer 2019 #bookaday challenge. I will be talking about Eventown by Corey Ann Haydu.
Slide 6: Eventown is most like The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry. Eventown doesn’t have the dire consequences that The Giver Quartet has; however, it’s the same concept that the founders of the society that that what they’re doing is best for its citizens when in actuality it’s not. Normally I include a picture book recommendation; however, I have never found a dystopian picture book. So, if you have one let me know.
