Family Book Club - click to register

Welcome to Family Book Club!

This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the 3rd-6th grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading "The Dragon With a Chocolate Heart" by Stephanie Burgis. Aventurine is restless inside her family’s cave and one day decides to explore the world outside. She meets a sorcerer and cannot say no to his enchanted hot chocolate which turns her into a human. Yet, now she has a new passion - chocolate! Genre: FANTASY. 

Chapters 7 – 12
1. What is your favorite kind of chocolate?
2. Would you like to learn how to make chocolate-y treats?
3. Marina has Aventurine try “chili chocolate”. Have you ever had Mexican Hot Chocolate? It was probably very similar to that, although maybe a bit spicier!
4. Why do you think the lord mayor wants to shut down The Chocolate Heart?
5. Aventurine’s family is looking for her and Aventurine knows the humans do not like dragons. Do you think this could bring trouble to the town? 

This week read chapters 13-18!
We will be having a special virtual event on Saturday, August 28 at 1 p.m. to meet the author! Please register here.
