Grandma's Book Club
Because of this, it came as a shock when she asked a grandchild what they were reading and they replied, "I don't like to read." She then realized that while some of her grandchildren loved reading, there were some that just didn't. So, she began to think of ways that she could encourage all of her grandchildren in a love of reading.
Once, she had a small collection, she asked her grandchildren if they would like to join Grandma's Book Club. The answer was, "Yes!"
She doesn't know how successful the book club has been yet, but feels that it has drawn attention to the importance of reading. Even the most reluctant of her readers are excited to tell her about what they are reading when they come to visit. Now, they know how important it is to her and that she is genuinely interested in what books they have enjoyed.
What books are in Grandma's Library?
I put a list together based on what is currently on her shelf, what she would like to add and some books that I have loved and would recommend. I've arranged the books is approximate age ranges. Maybe you'll discover a new book for your child. Here's the list: Grandma's Book Club Reading List
Have a Happy Day!
