Introducing Reading Together: A Family Exploration Book Club

RTFEBCI have been *so* excited to share this news, because you know I love book clubs. Jessica (Quirky Bookworm) and I are heading up Reading Together: A Family Exploration Book Club.

What’s it all about? It’s a book club focused on children’s books to share with your family, and we specifically selected themes and titles with the intent to expand our usual reading choices.

To try and make it so everyone can participate, no matter the age of your children, we’re having three “levels” of literature to go along with each of the six themes for the year: picture books, elementary-level, and tween/teen-level (roughly). You’re welcome to join in on any or all of the books, matching them to your reading levels or interests. 🙂

As part of the fun, we’ve got six fabulous cohosts who are joining us for the discussions:

So what’s the plan? There will be a blog link-up if you want to write a post about the books, and there will be a discussion in the Reading Together: Family Exploration Book Club Facebook Group. It’s a closed group, but just request to join it and we’ll get you added.

I’ll share additional details later in the year, but if you want to join us and need to find the books for January & February’s Arctic theme. In January we’ll focus on the elementary-level book The Year of Miss AgnesThe Year of Miss Agnes by Kirkpatrick Hill, and in February we’ll shift to Julie of the WolvesJulie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George.

There won’t be any official discussion for the picture book, but tomorrow I’ll be posting a list of possible titles to try and find at your library.

We’re really excited about this project! If you have friends who might be interested in participating, please let them know about our plans! Either share this post with them, or tell them about the RTFEBC Facebook Group, or just find us on social media with the #rtfebc hashtag.
