I'm a proud mama. Yesterday, my almost-third-grader said "You know what, Mom? I'd like to have a book club with my friends."
Of course the next words out of her mouth were, "But if we meet at someone else's house, can you just drop me off?" (What's up with that? Am I suddenly not cool enough to hang out? Hmm, must work on that.)
LOL. Anyway, we're undertaking an experimental book club this summer with a few friends. Not sure how it's going to work yet, but two of the books being thrown around are ANY WHICH WALL by Laurel Snyder (which my daughter is devouring right now and the book that precipitated the outburst) and MARTY McGUIRE by Kate Messner. Two of my favorite children's authors--not that I had any input at all!
So exciting to see her love reading and want to share it!
