Parents should never stop reading with their kids, which is why I'm so excited about Scholastic's brilliant plan for the summer to keep parents and kids reading together: The Mother-Daughter Book Club!
About the Mother-Daughter Book Club:
Start a tradition of reading with your daughter with a Mother-Daughter Book Club! Scholastic’s monthly selections will help you choose books that you and your daughter will enjoy!
The book club launched in May with 4 titles and there will be 2 new featured titles each month. June’s book selections are Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski and The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen.
Along with book selections, the Mother-Daughter Book Club website also features discussion questions and snack suggestions for your book club meetings and a monthly Skype sweepstakes where you can enter to win a Skype visit from one of the authors at your next book club meeting. June’s sweepstakes author is Sarah Mlynowski, author of Whatever After: Fairest of All.
So cool, right? I'm featuring this month's titles:
Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski: If you have a young tween reader who loves fairy tales, they will love Whatever After. It's the start to a new series about a brother and sister who discover a magic mirror in their basement. They are transported into Snow White's story, only stop Snow White from eating the apple and mess up her future. Can they put the story back together? There's tons of adventure and humor and the story is very fast paced. It also has an ending that leaves it open for more adventures to come. I read this one thinking of all the tweens who come into the library asking for fairy tales and princess stories. I'll be handing this one over for sure!
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen: This one is another start to a series, and if you have a fantasy fan, they'll be up all night reading The False Prince! I would even suggest it to readers who liked The Hunger Games-it's fantasy, but it has a competition element that I think those readers will enjoy. There are lots of secrets and the plot is fast paced. This is going to be a go to booktalk for all my fantasy fans at the library!
