It’s flown past but The Book Dragon Club is one! And since our first anniversary is during National Share-a-Story month chief dragon, Lexi Rees, will be hosting a series of open conversations during May on Clubhouse , the new-ish audio social media App – it’s all about the words!
The Clubhouse conversations will cover topics like “How to inspire reluctant readers” and “The importance of diversity in children’s books.”
At the start of the pandemic Lexi turned her after-school book clubs into a range of carefully curated book boxes and themed activity packs. The monthly boxes save parents’ time and effort in ensuring their child has access to a high quality, diverse library, and are specifically designed to encourage cross-curricular learning.
Lexi says, “Teachers always stress the importance of reading as a building block for learning. I believe books help a child become an independent thinker as they use their literary discoveries to address real-life situations. For instance, having been deprived of social contact through lockdown, books were a great way to help children connect with others. In the Book Dragon Club, we aim to create a lifelong love of reading that will help children thrive, whatever journey life takes them on.”
Our book boxes are designed to inspire a lifelong love of readingwith an emphasis on diversity by both genre and author. Each box includes an exclusive themed activity pack designed by experts to encourage cross-curricular, immersive, learning. Our boxes are suitable for all abilities, from reluctant readers to bookworms, although of course we call them book dragons. You can find out more about the book boxes at www.bookdragon.club
