Encourage your students to join our book groups, where they’ll expand their reading list and discuss their favorite books with their peers!
The Stories Julian Tells by Ann Cameron
Read: November 5-11
Discuss: November 12
Registration ends November 5.
The Cay* by Theodore Taylor
Read: November 2-5
Discuss: November 6
Registration ends October 31.
Books are selected based on interest level (not reading level) for these age groups. Some books may seem a little “young” to the older children in each group, but hopefully they’ll enjoy them anyway.
Students can listen to the audiobook version, if they prefer that format. (Check to see if your local library has OverDrive, CloudLibrary, or Hoopla – these services provide downloadable audiobooks free on loan to patrons.)
The goal for both groups is to encourage a love of reading. Our discussions are meant to keep students involved and on track with the reading list. I won’t try to sneak in a grammar lesson, or literary analysis, or promote any agendas. We’ll just read good books, chosen from a variety of genres. If students don’t like one book, hopefully they’ll like the next!
If older students (9th-12th grade) want their own group, I’ll be happy to start one. Just let me know.
