Kids Book Club

$25.00

Welcome to our 6-month pilot book club for kids!  Recommended for ages 4-7.   The book club runs from March 1 through August 31, 2018, and includes a special 6-month subscription to FarFaria, an award-winning literacy app for kids featuring thousands of books!  (Already have a FarFaria subscription?  Email [email protected], and we’ll provide you with a discount code to reduce your membership fee to $5.)

Each month we will select a book or several for kids to chose from.  Kids Books for a Better World, a Facebook group where parents and educators discuss books with positive role models and themes, will help with book selection.  Parents will be notified by email each month of the current book selection(s) and will be provided with prompts to encourage kids to submit content based on the book(s), such as drawings, book reports, selfies of themselves reading, etc.

The club will “meet” at the end of each month via YouTube, and will feature select submissions from club members, special guests, and more!

Description

We will do our best to email you within 24 hours of your purchase to provide you with your FarFaria activation code and the first book selection(s), and date for first book club “meeting” via YouTube live.  If you’re not available to watch the live feed, you’ll be able to come back at your convenience and watch.  Parents are encouraged to watch with their children and comment on the feed to take part in the discussion.

All submissions from kids, e.g. drawings, selfies, pictures of lego creations inspired by the book selection(s) (the sky is the limit!), should be emailed to  [email protected] at least 2 days before the book club “meets” each month.

Does your child want to be present for one of the book club meetings?  Email us and we’ll do our best to accommodate the request.

You can join the book club any time between March 1, 2018 and August 15, 2018.  Your 6-month FarFaria subscription will start the day you activate your subscription, but this pilot book club will only run through August 31, 2018, so you may miss some of the book clubs “meetings” depending on when you join.

This book club was created by General Store in partnership with FarFaria, the leading literacy app for kids, featuring thousands of books! Each month, with help from our friends at Kids Books for a Better World, we will select book(s) from the FarFaria collection featuring positive, diverse role models, themes of friendship and cooperation, and/or books that expose kids to science, math and civics lessons in a fun, engaging way. Membership gets you a 6-month subscription to FarFaria, along with advance notice of our book club picks, and suggested activities to help your child submit content to be shared at our virtual meetings and even the chance for your child to take part in our book club broadcast. Examples of content submitted by kids include: drawings, video of them talking about the books, questions for us to answer, etc. Several submissions will be selected each month to be shared during our book club meeting, which will “meet” virtually via YouTube at the end of the month.
