Kids Book Club with Kellie
Kellie Diguangco, educator and literacy advocate has hand selected books that are thought provoking, and beautiful. She will help lead the group in discussion and themed art activities to go beyond the book. A great way to engage in a deeper understanding of books, keep up reading fluency, to express and consider others’ perspectives on the same book. Class will meet once a month starting in February. Official Book Club badge & all three books included.
