Wow, four years ago today I started Growing Book by Book. It has been an incredible journey. I’m so grateful for all the wonderful people I have helped and met. I’m inspired everyday to bring you the best literacy resources that I can to nurture our youngest readers.
I just wanted to share some new and upcoming projects with you. I hope that you will be interested in participating in one, a few or all the goodies I have in store.

There was great interest in starting an adult book club to discuss books related to literacy. So, our first Growing Book by Book adult book club will begin in September. We will read and discuss four books a year. You are invited to participate in any that interest you.
Our discussions will take place in a Facebook Group. There will be ongoing conversations as well as a big group live conversation on the last Monday of the month. Join the Facebook Group to participate!
We will be reading Mem Fox’s, Reading Magic for our first club.
2015-2016 Book Based Activity Calendars
I just created a brand-new resource for families, teachers and librarians. You get 9 calendars and 9 resource sheets full of book suggestions and family activities based on weekly themes. Learn more about them and see a sample here.
Family Dinner Book Club
We are in year two of Family Dinner Book Club and it is one of my favorite projects on Growing Book by Book. Each month we announce a book to share with your family. Then, on the first of the month we provide a themed menu, table decoration crafts, conversation starters and a family service project to set you on track for a wonderful family literacy experience.
Please join us in September when the featured book will be Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty MacDonald.
Live Chats with Jodie
Each month (3rd Tuesday of the Month) I host a live chat on an event page through our Growing Book by Book Facebook page. This Tuesday (8/18/15) we will be talking about new books of 2015. RSVP on the event page to join us.
