The Loft Family Book Club

The Loft Family Book Club


School is out! But with COVID still seriously affecting the country, most of us are staying in. For parents, this can mean a strain to fill up the hours that would usually be taken up by camps, vacations, and time with friends. For kids, this can mean a frustrating search for activities that keep you interested and engaged. As a literary organization, the Loft finds answers to these conundrums in what we know best—books! But they aren't simply suggesting a reading list. They've curated a list of picture book, middle grade, and young adult titles that are not only entertaining but fodder for larger discussion. To facilitate those discussions, They've prewritten questions that you can think about and activities that you can do as a family.

 

Here are the books they've recommended so far, with links to the respective blog posts.
