Day 3 of the Virtual Book Tour at The National Writing For Children Center

    

       This month, I’m hosting Day 3 of the Virtual Book Tours for all
       the children’s book authors/illustrators who are part of the
       October Showcase at the National Writing for Children Center.
       Today, I’m pleased to be hosting Day 3 of the tour for author
       Mayra Calvani.

        My book, How to Turn Your Book Club Into a Spectacular Event,
       could be used by teachers to encourage students to enjoy reading
       and start their own book clubs. This could be as part of a special
       project or workshop. For instance, the class could be divided into
       several groups of 5 or 6. Then each group could start a club (the
       meetings could be done inside or outside the class). Eventually, a
       prize for the “most successful book club” could be awarded at the
       end of the school semester or year. 
                                               
                                                     

       How to Turn Your Book Club Into a Spectacular Event
       demonstrates the process of starting and maintaining a book club
       from start to end. From selecting the type of book club, to giving it
       a catchy name, to learning how to read critically, to coming up
       with great discussion questions, my little 45 page booklet explains
       it all.
      
       Book clubs aren’t only about books. They’re also about social
       sciences. Starting a book club will encourage kids to work in a
       group environment.

  1. Thanks for hosting me, Irene! I got it all wrong. I thought it was Margot hosting me yesterday instead of you–which is why I didn’t show up. LOL
