Brighton Book Club


Next meeting:  Friday Dec 14th, 3:30pm

This will be our only meeting in December, and we'll also have only one meeting in January:  January 18th.
After that we'll probably go back to our regular schedule: first and 3rd Fridays of the month.  Email Jill at jillknutson@gmail.com if you've got questions.


Two book options

Easier: The 91-Story Treehouse: Babysitting Blunders!
Harder: A Single Shard

(for Jan 18th:  E:The Field Guide (The Spiderwick Chronicles)  H: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe)

Think of two questions about the book to ask the other kids in your group!


Questions we often ask:

1. If you could give the book another title, what would it be? 
2. Which characters would you like to meet in real life? 
3. What do you wish was different about the ending?
4. Would the book make a cool movie? Video game? TV show? 
5. What is one thing you would ask the author if you could talk to him or her?
6. What do you think the author wants readers to remember most from this book? 
7. Was there one big lesson you took away from this book?
