2019 Woody & Chloe
Bring your elementary students on a 10-week reading adventure to follow our favorite pups, Woody & Chloe, in the chapter book, “Out of Sorts.”
Woody and Chloe are in the backyard enjoying a game of fetch. Attempting to impress the Maltese next door, Woody airs one out. Unfortunately, it hits the patio table and shatters Mom’s favorite pitcher. Needing money to replace the pitcher, Woody puts his throwing skills to good use and – with Chloe’s help – takes a job delivering newspapers. Impressed with their work, the publisher promotes Woody and Chloe to custodial engineers and tasks them with cleaning out the storage room. They rummage through gadgets they’ve never seen, discover antique printing equipment, and are fascinated with the stories they read in the newspapers dating back to the 1800s. More importantly, Woody and Chloe realize the impact newspapers have in our hometown, state, and country.
Beginning on Monday, September 16th, “Out of Sorts” will run each week for 10 weeks. Each chapter will be posted below and features an illustration and accompanying activities. In addition, there is a blog that discusses other festivals not featured in the newspaper series. “Out of Sorts” is written by Kentucky author Leigh Anne Florence and features her real-life miniature dachshunds Woody and Chloe. The series is illustrated by Chris Ware and the podcast is read by Scott Johnson.
