Our day 1 Assignment: Turn reading into a fun social activity — start a summer book club for your kids. Book clubs are a fun way to explore books and foster a love of reading in your kids. What is the best part about a book club? It’s getting together with friends and talking about a book you’ve all read. This summer, start a book club with your kids. You can take turns choosing books to read, and find time for snacks and conversation about the book! There are ideas of how to get started and they break it up by age group. Read More.
