In the last few months I have read two really great juvenile books about Book Clubs. Both The Mother Daughter Book Club and Bronte’s Book Club were really great reads for adults or kids. I am sure there are groups out there reading these for Book Club along with the book that the club is reading within the book (still with me?). Respectively those books are Little Women and Island of the Blue Dolphins for the above titles. What a great way to get kids into not only a modern fiction title but also a classic as well. Both these books also happen to be big on the girl power which is always a plus and both of the authors are also well known for children’s series. So try them out by themselves or with their Book Club titles.
The Mother Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick
Are you a fashion junky? Do you love animals and being outdoors? Is reading your life or are you a sport loving tomboy? Well no matter which one you are you will love this addictive book. Megan, Cassidy, Emma and Jess could not be more different but they all share one thing in common. Their parents all signed them up for the Mother Daughter Book Club and they all do not want to go. Despite this for one whole year they will read Little Women together and meet to talk about the book whether they want to or not.
Bronte’s Book Club by Kristiana Gregory
Have you ever had to move away to a new place? Sometimes it can be scary to move especially if you don’t know anyone. Twelve year old Bronte is nervous about moving to a new town even if it means she can spend nearly everyday at the beach. Will she be able to make new friends in California even in the summer? Starting a book club seems like the perfect solution but soon Bronte finds that it’s not as easy as she thought. Will anyone come and if they do will they be Bronte’s friend?
