Kids & Companions

for 8-to-11-year-olds and an adult companion

Families reading together is one of our favorite things to encourage! In this group, kids and an adult reading partner of their choice read the same book each month and get together to discuss (yes, the adults too) in conversation that is always lively and enlightening. Email us at and we'll forward your information to Terra to be added to the email list!
