Book Share Mar 25

In our exploration of new ways to keep our kids connected while they have to stay apart, we tried our very first Book Share on Zoom!

Last November and December we had experimented with a Kids Book Club where there was no compulsory book to read. Everyone (ages 2 - 18) just came together and talked about what they were reading and if they would recommend it to others. Today, in our first virtual session, we heard from 6 children who had books to share. These were their recommendations:

The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy (book #1)

by Jeanne Birdsall

The Big Book of Wild Cats: Fun Animal Facts for Kids

by Rachael Smith

Wings of Fire: The Dragonet Prophecy (book #1)

by Tui Sutherland

Dragon Masters: Rise of the Earth Dragon (book #1)

by Tracey West

Charlotte's Web

by E.B. White

Little House in the Big Woods (book #1)

by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Bone: Out from Boneville (book #1)

by Jeff Smith

Dog Man: For Whom the Ball Rolls (book #7)

by Dav Pilkey

Strange Birds: A Field Guide to Ruffling Feathers

by Celia C. PĂ©rez

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

by Robert O'Brien

One child told me she's looking forward to reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. We had a lovely discussion! Looking forward to doing this again!
