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.

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 club is 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-month book study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.

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.
