Time to announce our Family Dinner Book Club for May! We visited the zoo for April Family Dinner Book Club when we featured Xander’s Panda Party. This month we switch to a chapter book that takes place at a factory where yummy treats are made.

The Family Dinner Book Club selection for May is…
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
This year marks the 50th anniversary of this featured title. Willy Wonka’s factory is opening and only five lucky golden ticket winners get to go inside. Augustus Gloop, whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat; Violet Beauregarde, gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!
Participating in Family Dinner Book Club is easy and fun!
How Family Dinner Book Club Works
1. So, get your copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and start reading. You can borrow it from the library or from a friend, find it on your bookshelf or purchase a copy.
2. Then, on May 15th, check back here for all your Family Dinner Book Club preparation needs. Links will be provided for your dinner conversation table topics from Growing Book by Book, arts and crafts table decorations from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom and your book related menu from Daisy at Home.
3. Decide which night towards the end of May works best for your family to have Family Dinner Book Club. Set the table, prepare the food and settle in for a nice cozy dinner to discuss the book.
4. Don’t forget to snap a picture of your Family Dinner Book Club and share it with us on our Family Dinner Book Club Facebook page!
5. Then, head back here on June 1st, to see our new title for the month of June and participate all over again!
