Book Club for Kids: Island of the Blue Dolphins

5th Grade Book Club Activities for Island of the Blue Dolphin

I remember reading Island of the Blue Dolphins when I was in 5th or 6th grade and really loving it but it was a kind of quiet book. I didn’t notice kids at school reading it either, and I assumed too old-fashioned and had fallen out of favor. When it arrived on our door step for PickyKidPix’s 5th grade book club, I was delighted! She hasn’t it read it yet though. Read more…

Cricket In Times Square: Book Club for Kids

Cricket in Times Square Book Club for Kids

I hosted my middle daughter’s book club this past week.  She chose her all-time favorite book by which she judges all other books, Newbery Honor Book, The Cricket in Times Squareby George Selden.  As a second grader, this book was a little hard for her although she won’t admit it, so I gave extra time to her book club friends to read the book.  Most of the kids finished the book and loved it.  Her book club is an active group of little girls, so I had planned two activities, but the winter has been so dreary and long, and the book club day was the nicest day we had in a long time, so the kids ate a snack and did the first activity (both of which took all of 30 minutes) and spent the rest of the time racing around outside.

Book Club for Kids: Because of Winn Dixie

Did I ever mention that if I were to choose one book as my favorite children’s book, this would be it? Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo was also a major driver in starting my blog. (Read this to my oldest when she was in 2nd grade, then handed her The Tiger Rising by same author when she was in 3rd grade. Oops. That one was too depressing!) Read more…
