We started our first parent-child book club when our oldest children were 4 years old…..they are now 15. During the past 9 years, we have planned and implemented many exciting family book clubs featuring meaningful discussions, creative projects, and exciting field trips with our children.
Over the years, friends have been interested in modeling our concept. With those friends, we developed two additional book clubs – and all three book clubs continue to thrive! We decided to write this book to share our tips for success in creating a rewarding book club experience that will enable you to develop connections with your children while enjoying the pleasures of reading.
We hope you will enjoy embarking on your own family book club adventure! Happy Reading!
