Next Up: Staying in the US in Family Book Club

Apparently we all took the summer off, but you’ve got time to join in for the final months of our family book club as we look at books set in the United States! We’ve also got a new co-host, Kate of Moms’s Radius.

What books are we reading in September and October?


For the youngest readers, the picture book selected is Grace For President by Kelly S. DiPucchio, and illustrated by LeUyen Pham (can’t find it at your library? I’ll be back soon with a post on some other options, but do look for this one, as it is wonderful).

For September’s early elementary / middle grade title, we’re reading Dancing Home by Alma Flor Ada and Gabriel M. Zubizarreta.

October’s selection for teens / adults is Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman.

Chat about the books

We’d love to chat about the books with you in the Facebook group – tell us what you & your family think about the titles, or share additional ideas for books (or crafts, or food) that connect to the theme!

  1. Awesome! My intro post will be up on Tuesday. It includes my Facebook discussion timeline. Are you OK with me leading all of the questions? Did you and Jessica want to do one of the books? I have them all, and I’m fine either way. 🙂
