What we're about
Welcome Super Readers!
This is a book club for parents to help and encourage their kids to enjoy reading, while having fun too! Because, after all, reading is fun!!
We're aiming to get mid to upper elementary to early middle school aged kids with a 4th to 8th grade reading level together to read and talk about books. Although this is NOT a playgroup, we have fun with reading our selected books and doing activities to go along with them, such as crafty things, comparing the books to movies, themed parties/dinners, etc. We read a variety of children's books, such as classics, non-fiction, and novels. Depending on the levels of all the kids involved, we might eventually try a series.
We'll aim for reading one book a month, unless it's pretty long, in which case we'll split it up.
We just ask that parents encourage your kids to keep up with the reading, so they can enjoy this group to the fullest. You are more than welcome to stay during our meetup too, and participate in the conversation.
Also, parents, please join out Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/superreaderskidsbookclub/), to keep in touch between meetups, get ideas and book suggestions, etc.
We want to make reading fun and rewarding for our kids, and we're hoping Super Readers is a great way to achieve that!
*The Dues for this group are $3/child or $5/family. That is to cover the cost of the Meetup group ($89/6 months), and will be a once a year fee.
Our July/August book selection is:
The BFG by Roald Dahl
