BY TAKING THE "ASSIGNMENT" OUT OF READING ASSIGNMENTS
BY TAKING THE "ASSIGNMENT" OUT OF READING ASSIGNMENT
My children loved to read. They eagerly sought out newer and thicker books for themselves. They were avid readers.
That is... until they weren't.
One day I noticed that my kids were beginning to HATE reading. They complained... loudly... about reading for even short periods of time. And that's when I discovered that reading had become "one more thing" in their list of school assignments.
Instead of reading for fun...
for the love of reading...
for the desire to jump into a new adventure...
they were now reading for a grade or reward.
At the time the school they were attending participated in a reading program that was designed to encourage children to read by collecting points. At the end of the school year these points translated into rewards like an all-day carnival. In theory it was a fantastic idea. In reality they were now reading as much as they could in as little time as possible just to earn the points. These reading assignments weren't just for rewards. They also translated into grades.
Reading had lost all appeal.
When we began to homeschool, I did the worst thing possible. I assigned reading passages with narration and comprehension tests.
And the hatred for reading grew.
I knew we had to bring back a love of reading and that's when we began adding rabbit trails and magic dust to our literature.
BY ADDING RABBIT TRAILS OF DISCOVERY
In every online book club, we will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature and meander down paths about pop-culture, history, biographies, poetry, music and more.
We will take deep dives into some of the subjects touched on in the book and broaden our minds with new adventures.
BY ADDING A BIT OF MAGIC DUST
We will also bring literature to life by sprinkling a bit of magic dust along the way. These hands-on projects will take us into the book. We will touch, see, feel and learn on our new adventures.

Yes, this course is designed for children to complete mostly independently. However, there are parent notes throughout for projects and videos. I recommend parents review the course before their children begin.
Absolutely! We are a homeschooling family, and we encourage all our children to participate in book clubs. Often we will read the book together as a family read-aloud and then work through the rabbit trails and magic dust together.
This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.
The book club is set up on a lesson by lesson basis. It can take as much or as little time as you and your child feel you want to spend. That said, the original design is for a one-month book study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.
