Parent-Child Book Club

About Parent-Child Book Club

Parent-Child book clubs are a great avenue for parents and children to connect with one another, enjoy a great story, and explore topics together. Themes and issues can then be examined during book club meetings and at home as a family.

At HMS, we offer book clubs for both Grade 5 and Grade 6 families. The clubs meet three times throughout the school year, and the discussions focus on books from our Reading Challenge lists. If you are interested in signing up your family for the Parent-Child Book Club, please see the dates below.

The books we discuss for our Winter and Spring club dates are determined by the club members' votes. Families hear about the Reading Challenge books during the October meeting, and then immediately vote on their favorites. We email the winning titles to book club members the following morning and also post them on this website. May the best books win!
