Our intention is to choose books that will interest both boys and girls, especially in this age bracket. I suspect that as the Society grows, we’ll read a variety of books based on the particular interests of the different kids who show up on a regular basis.
This month's book is The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood.
We would ask you to encourage your kids to come to society meetings even if they aren’t necessarily interested in this book. As long as they’re interested in reading, we’ll be happy to have them.
The goal of our this club's fearless leader (the amazing Becky M.) is to introduce titles that will pleasantly surprise society members, like all book clubs, titles may not be ones members would choose to read on their own. She’ll definitely be open to book suggestions from the kids, but she will try to have three options for them to choose from every month to keep things simple.
The Young Readers’ Society will be about giving kids a safe place to talk about books and reading and to express their opinions openly. Parents will be encouraged to browse the shop, or grab a bite to eat in Ballard, but as far as the Society goes – no grown-ups allowed!
Don’t hesitate to call Becky M. anytime with questions/comments. Or, you can write her directly by clicking the contect us text above left.
Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: They must have been raised by wolves. The Incorrigible Children actually were. Discovered in the forest of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children. Luckily, Miss Penelope Lumley is no ordinary governess. A recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, Penelope embraces the challenge of her new position.
