HELP CHOOSE THE READING CLUB THEMES
FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR

Each month our reading clubs have a theme, such as Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales for our May 13th reading clubs and People & Places Around the World for our June 10th reading clubs.

The Curriculum Committee is starting to consider themes for the 2017-18 school year and they can use your ideas!

To see our current themes, please see our Teacher-Selected Books by Month page. On that page you can also click on the year links at the top to see the themes we used last year and in previous years.

Your new theme ideas should be broad enough for teachers to find many children's books that will fit in that theme, but also narrow enough to sound engaging.

Please email your new theme ideas to info@readingtokids.org, or bring them to our next Curriculum Committee meeting!

Thanks, and we hope you will drop by our Festival of Books booth this weekend!
