My First Book Club

for 5-to-7-year-olds

Guess what? Kids do NOT need to be reading on their own to come to this book club designed just for them! Books include longer picture books and early readers. Meetings include a reading of the selected book (to refresh everyone’s memory), a short discussion, and a fun activity or craft.
