Participate In Our First Parent-Child Book Club Contest!
Buy our book, The Parent-Child Book Club: Connecting With Your Kids Through Reading, and tell us how you put our philosophy and practical advice into action in your own home! Did you use one of our 20 Book Club Model Guides or our "Quick Tips for Success?" Was it helpful to read our sections titled "Putting Our Ideas Into Action" or "Real Life Issues Solved?" Or did you use one of our enrichment ideas for an art or science project, a snack, a game, a puzzle, a physical activity, or a field trip? Were any of our suggested websites or books a big hit with your group? Tell us all about your experience conducting a family book club.
Email us at email@example.com.
We hope you will include photos of your book club too!
Our First Contest Winner:
Reading your wonderful book inspired a great field trip for our Mother-Daughter Book Club!
I moderated a book group of 11 first-grade girls and their mothers who met monthly during the school year at one another's homes. We focused on classic books, typically, that were read aloud by parents. Our final book of the year was Sydney Taylor's All of A Kind Family. After reading your book, I was inspired to hold our last meeting of the year in a more interesting location: The Tenement Museum in New York City. The girls and their moms were given a wonderful tour of the museum. The tour we chose was interactive, and allowed our group to pretend to be new immigrants on the Lower East of New York, just like the protagonists in this memoir-esque novel. We had supper at Katz' deli, and had an enriched discussion about the book.
Thanks for the inspiration! Kathryne Lyons
We will select five winners who will receive a complimentary New Book Club Model Guide. We will also include some of your photos and emails on our website! We look forward to hearing about how you organized and conducted a Parent-Child Book Club in your own home!
