Awhile back we started a family book club to help my littlest little fall in love with books and reading again. She became very discouraged this past year when they started learning to read independently at school. Our last book club selection was Stuart Little by E.B. White. We all really enjoyed the time spent together reading it. We celebrated finishing Stuart Little by watching the movie for our family movie night!
Our new family book club selection is the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling and Illustrated by Jim Kay. We LOVE Harry Potter in this house! My oldest blew through the entire series when he was in Grade 2 and then re-read it when in Grade 4. The story is so imaginative and engaging. The younger two littles have watched almost all the movies (we haven’t let them watch the last few) and love Harry Potter just as much as the rest of us. The illustrations in this edition are amazing! They are so beautifully done and really bring the story to life. Every one of us is super excited to dive into this book!
