A book club for kids? How does that work? Are there snacks?
Discover the nuts and bolts of how to organize a family or neighborhood book club with Melissa
Amos, the founder of Crate Expectations.
After starting a kids’ book club to help motivate her own children’s reading, Melissa never
imagined it would still be running strong years later and develop into a family business. Along
the way, she’s learned what works (and what doesn’t) and shares stories from the reading
trenches – choosing books, engaging reluctant readers, shaping discussion and building reading
confidence, what to do when a book falls flat, making connections through activities, embracing
the chaos and avoiding the Pinterest trap.
