Members of the Royal Palms of Largo book club and Janice Levine’s fifth grade class at Country Day School in Largo met to discuss “Tuck Everlasting” April 17.
LARGO – The book club at Royal Palms of Largo and fifth-graders at Country Day School in Largo met April 17 for intergenerational book discussion on “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt.

Janice Levine’s fifth grade class and the Royal Palms’ book club, organized by life enrichment coordinator Kathy Nordlinger, all read the book, which explores life and death within a fantasy setting. The students participated in several classroom activities to expand their enjoyment of the book and understanding of the literature.

Then on April 17, the Royal Palms residents visited the Country Day School to join in a lively discussion between the two generations. Together, they tackled topics such as the book’s theme, conflicts and story resolution as it relates to each of the generations. They also discussed life as a 10 to 11 year old today versus growing up in the 1930s and 1940s. Both groups enjoyed learning from the other and hearing opinions from the different generations’ perspectives.

The Country Day School is an internationally recognized pre-kindergarten through eighth grade private school. Visit www.countrydaylargo.com.

Royal Palms of Largo is an active, independent senior residence. For more information, call Kathy Nordlinger at 585-8003.
