Book Club for Kids

the best books, the smartest readers

The Book Club for Kids is a free, 20-minute podcast where middle grade readers discuss a novel. There’s also an interview with the author and a reading from the book from a “celebrity.” We also offer a free newsletter with reading tips.

The NEA says 70% of middle schoolers read more than ten books a year. That number falls off a cliff by high school.Today’s challenge is even tougher: reading for pleasure competes with distractions from tech devices. How do you create lifelong readers, particularly among those reluctant to put down the smartphone? Use the technology they love.
