Our book selection this month was the delightful tale, Love That Dog by Sharon Creech.

This book is unique in that the entire story is written through free verse poetry journal entries. It was a quick and enjoyable read for all of our attendees.

Catching Fire Book Club Celebration for Kids

At the end of her sixth-grade year, Kayleigh and I realized that book discussions weren’t always a whole lot of fun with only the two of us. We kicked off her seventh-grade year by organizing a monthly book club with friends.

I selected one of my favorite books, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, as our kick-off book. The characters are fantastic and the writing is incredible.

The host mom and I were feeling inspired, so we decided to go all in and truly celebrate this book in a way the girls would not soon forget!
