A Family Book Club: Stella by Starlight

stella by starlightOur friends at Brightly have created a way for families to explore important topics through books, and have some fun! The idea of a family book club is that everyone in the family reads the same book and then gathers together to discuss it and take part in book-themed activities.

You can even pair up with other families to double the fun. It’s a great way to spend time together and encourage a lifelong passion for books in your children.

This month’s pick is Stella by Starlight, by Sharon Draper. When a burning cross set by the Klan causes panic and fear in 1932 Bumblebee, North Carolina, fifth-grader Stella must face prejudice and find the strength to demand change in her segregated town.
