If You’re a Parent…And Your Child Forms a Book Club

Posted by on March 25, 2016.

Recently, my daughter has started to carry an additional backpack to school – one of those square, drawstring, logo-laden bags that one can often acquire at an event. When asked what she carries in it, she replied, “My book club books!” Here is how the discussion went:

Me: “What does it mean to have book club?”

Her: “Me and Elle read and talk about books.” (Said with some disdain.)

Me: “When do you do book club?”

Her: “At recess.”

Me: “You take the library books outside?”

Her: “Only when it is nice out, we haven’t had book club in a while.”

Luckily for her, she has found special friends who share her love of reading.

We love reptiles because kids love reptiles. And when third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders know they’re going to meet some snakes, you can bet they’re excited to read about snakes.

 

Cutler School in West Swanzey, NH is a 2013-2014 CLiF Year of the Book school.
