Host a Quarterly Book Event
Invite friends and family. Your child picks the book everyone will read beforehand. Here are some ideas:
Plan a menu the protagonist would enjoy.
Have a (book title) jeopardy game with prizes.
Create and hand out a list of 10 key words from the story. Any time someone uses one of the words, the first person to ding the bell gets a nickel.
Develop a protagonist profile by asking people to answer questions in advance: What would be (character)’s favorite book? Movie? TV show? Food? What’s their middle name?
