Scholastic Mother Daughter Book Club

Scholastic has come up with a great new idea just in time for summer - a Mother Daughter book club. The goal is to encourage reading and discussing great books. The club is designed for girls 8 - 12 and their mothers. 
The book club launched May 1 with 4 titles: Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood, Pie by Sarah Weeks, Tomorrow Girls: Behind the Gates by Eva Gray, and The Boy on Cinnamon Street by Phoebe Stone, and there will be 2 new featured titles each month. 
June's featured titles are Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski and The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen.

Along with book selections, the Mother-Daughter Book Club website also features discussion questions and snack suggestions for your book club meetings and a monthly Skype sweepstakes where you can enter to win a Skype visit from one of the authors at your next book club meeting.

Here is the link to the Mother Daughter Book Club at Scholastic. You can get lots of good information here. 

Who wouldn't want to share Polly's Perfect Chocolate Cream Pie after reading Pie by Sarah Weeks? Or pizza after reading The Boy on Cinnamon Street by Phoebe Stone.This club makes me wish that I had a daughter to share this experience with so that I could organize a club of my own. Unfortunately, I don't.

As an incentive to begin a club for you, your daughter and some friends, one interested blog reader has a chance to win copies of all May book club titlesGlory Be, Pie, Tomorrow Girls: Behind the Gates and The Boy on Cinnamon Street!

Complete this form and the set of books might be yours! The contest runs until midnight, May 29 and is open to residents of the US and Canada. The winner will be notified by email.
