Reading Together is the essential guide for parents interested in starting a book club with their kids and raising their children to become book-loving adults.
This book is the first guide to parent-child book clubs. Written by a group of mums and their adolescent children who started a book club while the kids were in first grade, this how-to book shares the dos and don’ts they learned over more than 100 meetings and 100 books.
Brimming with insight and inspiration, Reading Together includes the details of organising and structuring meetings, tips on finding diverse books and choosing titles that spur discussion, common book club challenges and how to overcome them, and more.
Readers will also find plenty of curated booklists with brilliant recommendations for middle grade and YA readers across genres, from sci-fi to mystery, adventure, and graphic novels. This book is a go-to gift for bookish parents who hope to raise a reader and connect with their community through the magic of books.
