What is in an Online Book Club?

Rabbit Trails

We will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature studies and meander down paths about pop-culture, history, biographies, poetry, music and more. We will take deep dives into some of the subjects touched on in the book and broaden our minds with new adventures.

Magic Dust

We will also bring literature to life by sprinkling a bit of magic dust along the way. These hands-on projects will take us into the book through science, art, games and more. We will touch, see, feel and learn about the book through the activities.

Vocabulary & Grammar

Every Family Online Book Club includes the chance to learn spelling and grammar through copywork and dictation. We will also discuss literary elements found in the book and use our new knowledge for a writing project.

Party Time!!

The pinnacle of the Family Online Book Club experience is the Party School! At the end of each literature study, we will celebrate the book with a party. Invite friends or family over for food and fun! All the ideas for food, decorations, and activities are included.

Frequently Asked Questions


What ages of children is the book club for?
The books have topics and activities that would be appropriate for high school.
What supplies will we need?
You will need the books listed in the Book List section of the course. You may also want a notebook for notes and vocabulary. The project supply lists are provided at the beginning of each course. You may choose which projects you will want to do.
What are the dates of the book club?
This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own for the lifetime of Literary Adventures for Kids.
How long should this course take?
The book clubs are set up on a lesson by lesson basis. It can take as much or as little time as you and your child feel you want to spend. That said, the original design is for a one-year literature study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.
Can my child work independently?
Yes, this course is designed for children to complete mostly independently. However, there are parent notes throughout for projects and videos. I recommend parents review the course before their children begin.
Can this be used for more than one child or as a family course?
Absolutely! We are a homeschooling family, and we encourage all our children to participate in book clubs. Often we will read the book together as a family read-aloud and then work through the rabbit trails and magic dust together.
Can this be used in a co-op setting?
Yes. Please contact me at [email protected] for information about school and co-op licensing.
What if I have questions or need help?
You can contact me at [email protected] and I will answer you as soon as possible.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We understand that not every book or course is the perfect fit. Due to the digital nature of this product, we are limited in how long we can offer a refund. If you don't find that the course fits for your family, please let us know within 5 days of purchase for a full refund. After that time, we will not be able to offer a full refund.
