I chose the book The Raft by Jim LaMarche just a few minutes before our book club began, because I’m a well-prepared book club leader. [ha!] I thought it might take too long to read at our book club meeting, but we had two copies and my sister showed pictures while I read, which made things move along more quickly.
The Raft is one of my favorites, and it was perfect for a summer book club discussion. The kids seemed to really enjoy it, and the discussion was wonderful (even the post-book-club-mom-discussion). I re-wrote our notes so that I could post them here (and you could actually read them…).
