“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
- Herman Melville
The underlying philosophy of our book, The Parent-Child Book Club: Connecting With Your Kids Through Reading, is that we as parents need to be mindful about making strong connections with our children. With our parent-child book clubs, we strive to make connections with our kids through reading and discussing books, and engaging in related enrichment activities. We love the idea of creating connections and communities through literacy, and we are thrilled to be able to share our thoughts about organizing and conducting family book clubs.
