“It's exactly what I love to do for my kids education, but don’t always have the time to plan it out. I love that its detailed, but yet still doable, not overwhelming at all.”
- Homeschool Mom of Two
“I am ecstatic about this online book club. I was blown away by the fun resources and learning packed into an easy-to-follow online resource. The twins and I are starting it together next week!”
- Homeschool Mom and Owner of Wright at Homeschool
If you want to enrich your child’s studies, take the time to invest in the research. Look for ways to bring the culture, context, and history to life.
Or you make your life a little easier and let me do the work for you. It is a passion of mine. I love creating book clubs and sharing them with others. I created Literary Adventures for Kids to help homeschool moms find a stress-free way to add a little adventure to their homeschool.
With Literary Adventures' Online Book Clubs you can:

Family online book clubs are Teachable courses that guide your student through reading novels while adding optional grammar, spelling, and writing. Each book club is made up of 8 parts that are designed to be a month-long literature study. They are designed for students ages upper elementary through high school. Click on any of the pictures below to see the different elements of each book club and how easily you can add adventure to your literature studies.
Several per Lesson
We will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature studies 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.
Several per Course
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 through science, art, games and more. We will touch, see, feel and learn about the book through the activities.
One per Lesson
Every Family Online Book Club includes the chance to learn spelling and grammar through copywork and dictation. We will also discuss literary elements found in the book and use our new knowledge for a writing project.
One Per Course
The pinnacle of the Family Online Book Club experience is the Party School! At the end of each literature study, we will celebrate the novel with a party. Invite friends or family over for food and fun! All the ideas for food, decorations, and activities are included.
Adding adventure to education in A Wrinkle in Time book club.
“I particularly like the way these Online Book Club studies take advantage of internet resources to enhance the study of novels while also adding activities for family involvement. The inclusion of spelling, grammar, vocabulary, literary analysis, and composition work means that studies can cover a significant part of a student’s language arts coursework for middle school students, although they will need additional instruction in grammar and composition. If you are more narrowly focused on using these studies primarily for coverage of literature, they offer solid content in an interesting format that is very easy to use."

Dachelle is a former traditional teacher turned homeschool mom. She has a passion for literature and for adding adventure to her homeschool. She has started several book clubs in her community with the idea that each book club should be a celebration of literature. At Literary Adventures for Kids she takes those experiences and uses them to create online book clubs that add that little bit of magic to your children's education.
“Education should be a living, breathing, tangible thing.”
It depends on the book that we will be using. The literature we use will range from elementary to high school aged children. Each book club will include an age range and a link to a parent review.
After you make your purchase, you will receive an email link to the course. You will need to create a username and password, if this is your first course.
**If you are using a filtering device (like Covenant Eyes), you will need to approve our site in order to access your course.
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own for the lifetime of Literary Adventures for Kids.
Yes, this course is designed for older 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.
Younger children will need parent guidance.
This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.
The online 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.
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.
