Adults aren’t the only ones who should get to have book discussions! That’s why your Library offers Junior Traveling Tales, which are book club kits for kids. Over 25 novels are available for checkout, including classics such as The Hobbit and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and newer reads like The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary. Find a full list of the available titles here. The books are geared toward kids ages 8-12, but anyone can check them out.
School Age Program Coordinator Jennifer Johnson says, “the Junior Traveling Tales are a great resource, especially for homeschool families and educators who want to do novel studies but aren’t sure where to start.” The kits give kids everything they need to start a book discussion group, including up to 10 copies of the book, discussion questions, and ideas for extension activities. Kits are checked out to one person for four weeks and must be returned as a complete set. Learn more about the program here.
We offer off-site book discussion resources for all ages, including Book Buddy boxes for preschool use and Traveling Tales kits for adults.
