*Thanks to Melissa for such a wonderful idea and sharing it with us!*
Looking for a tip to help your family stay connected in this fast-paced world? Start a parent-child book club to easily and economically make connections with your children through a community of books. Find a few like-minded friends and their children who are interested in joining you on this adventure. Agree on the goals and ground rules for your family book club. Choose books that will be challenging and engaging to read. The host adult for each meeting can draft open-ended discussion questions that will ideally stimulate a rewarding book discussion. Also, the host can create enrichment activities such as book-inspired art or science projects, snacks, field trips, movement or sports activities, and games or puzzles. Enjoy reading the books that your group has selected, and bonding with your family through meaningful discussions and related activities. Holiday time is the perfect time to embark on a family book club experience!
