The Great Treehouse WarJanuary 2022

This month we are reading The Great Treehouse War by Lisa Graff. From the publisher:

Winnie’s last day of fourth grade ended with a pretty life-changing surprise. That was the day Winnie’s parents got divorced and decided that Winnie would live three days a week with each of them and spend Wednesdays by herself in a treehouse between their houses, to divide her time perfectly evenly. It was the day Winnie’s seed of frustration with her parents was planted, a seed that grew until it felt like it was as big as a tree itself.

By the end of fifth grade, Winnie decides that the only way to change things is to barricade herself in her treehouse until her parents come to their senses—and her friends decide to join. It’s kids vs. grown-ups, and no one wants to back down first. But with ten kids in one treehouse, all with their own demands, things get pretty complicated! Even if they are having the most epic slumber party ever.


This month’s kit will include:

  • A slinky and kinetic sand (so you can be prepared to celebrate Build a Sandcastle Day and Slinky Day)
  • Embroidery thread to make a friendship bracelet
  • Copy of book (yours to keep)


All kits have been claimed. Thank you to all who participated!
