Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie

Mrs. Peyton, Counselor, and I led a Friendship Book Club with 2nd grade girls this fall.  We read Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg.  

It's about a girl named Eleanor who is so sad because her babysitter, Bibi, has to move to Florida to take care of her sick father.  Eleanor and her family have a tough time getting used to Bibi's absence, and to Natalie, Eleanor's new babysiter.  Eleanor works through it though, and over time, grows to love Natalie too.  It's a funny, great book, with a couple sequels too! 

To celebrate finishing the book, our six participants were invited to make their own green felt pickle bookmark, and we tried pickles, cookies, and even pickle juice on a cookie!  Check out our syllabus on the photo for more information about this fun book club.
