Hi Rock Stars!
I just wanted to share this FANTASTIC idea I stumbled upon as I was looking for menu ideas for my own book club. It’s called Family Dinner Book Club, and I found it on a site called www.growingbookbybook.com. It is a website for nurturing young readers with great ideas! One of those strategies I found was creating a family book club and connecting it with a family dinner menu and activities. It’s geared towards kids ages 4-8, but I LOVE this as an idea for ALL AGES! You could definitely do this with children under 4 on a smaller scale, and you could ABSOLUTELY do this with your TWEENS and TEENS as well. Family Dinner Book Club would be a great platform for getting everyone talking, especially when sparking conversation over dinner at that age can be often painful at best. Plus, it gives a wonderful structure for connecting as a family. Please know, you DO NOT have to make it as elaborate as shown here. I don’t want you to put that kind of pressure on yourself. Create your own version of it with your family and do what works for YOU! Enjoy and happy reading!
