By reading books and discussing them together parents share a special time with their child while helping him or her develop a love of reading and important language and literacy skills.
BookEnds is recommended for parents and students who enjoy reading as well as those who need a little incentive. Just read the book selected for the month, either together or separately, and come to BookEnds ready to participate. Books are carefully chosen to appeal to both boys and girls. At each meeting, the group will discuss last month’s book choice, enjoy a book-related snack, and engage in a fun activity (artistic, theatrical, or quiz format).
