How the book club works
We organise our bookshelves into three reading levels: picture books, chapter books, and advanced readers.
Each book that we do in the club has an accompanying activity pack. Not only are these FUN, but they are specifically designed to create an immersive learning environment including literacy, science, history, geography, cooking, arts and crafts, plus of course some games and puzzles.
It’s up to you whether you start the book or the activity pack first – either way there are hours of entertainment bursting from each pack!
- Book box membership. Receive a beautifully packaged box with the book-of-the-month for your chosen reading level and accompanying activity pack every month, delivered to your door in a letterbox friendly size. Just choose your reading level – easy! This membership includes full online access too. Note – this is currently only available in the UK.
- Online membership. All the activities are uploaded to our clubhouse and ready for you to download at home. This subscription does not include a physical book/ printed activity pack which saves you money as you can borrow the book from the library, and gives you flexibility if you prefer an ebook or audio version. Activities are kept online for three months, to allow for slower readers.
See what’s on our bookshelves at the moment
Aimed at our youngest readers and listeners, the picture books in this section of the club are as fun to read aloud as they are to listen to.
Here are our current picture book reads …
Finding a Friend
Our August selection is a fun story about settling in – perfect for opening discussions about starting school.
Tales from the Travel Pouch
Our September selection takes a trip to South America with Lamby and Flossie.
Superheroes don’t get scared
Our October selection is a fun story, plus a great way tot start an important conversation.
Aimed at intermediate readers, the chapter books in this section of the club have short chapters to help readers gain confidence as they move away from picture based texts (although you’re never too old to enjoy an illustrated book, and graphic novels can have very well written and complex plots so should not be viewed negatively).
Here are our current chapter book reads …
Fabio, the world’s greatest flamingo detective
Our August selection is guaranteed to make animal lovers and would-be detectives laugh.
Sam Wu is not afraid of ghosts
