Book Clubs for Kids- Start One Today!

by admin

Book clubs are an enjoyable way for children to develop literacy skills. Reading increases vocabulary and fluency, and exposes children to new views and beliefs. Getting involved in a book club further enhances these skills by giving children the opportunity to share ideas and opinions, analyze the story, and strengthen comprehension skills. Plus, book clubs are fun! Children have the chance to make new friends and read great books.

Get a book club started today with help from these library books:

The Kids’ Book Club Book by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp

The Book Bunch: Developing Book Clubs for Beginning Readers by Laura J.H. Smith

And it wouldn’t be a book club without yummy snacks:

The Book Club Cookbook by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp

The Dunwoody Library and the Clarkston Library currently offer book clubs for kids.  Contact these branches to learn more.
