Theme: Family
This month we're reading books about families of all kinds. Family is a theme you can find in any kind of book, from fantasy to adventure, historical fiction to realistic fiction, sci-fi to mystery. What makes a family? Who is the family in the story? Who isn't there? Pick a book about brothers and sisters, foster families, parents and children, grandparents, step-families, or any other type of family you can think of, then come talk about it with us!
