Roundtable Reading: Guts by Raina Telgemeier

Recommended for ages 8 & up (younger kids welcome as listeners)

  • Reading led by

    Jennifer Gordon is a librarian at Malcolm X Elementary School in Berkeley.

Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it’s probably just a bug. When Raina returns to school, she’s facing the usual highs and lows with friends, not-friends, and classmates. And her tummy trouble isn’t going away; in fact, it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What’s going on? This relatable graphic novel, Telgemeier’s latest, is based on her true story.
