8. Figure Out Timing

9. Provide Snacks For your Book Club Meetings

10. Choose Your Books

11. Keep the Conversation Flowing

Make sure the kids in your book club always leave the meeting with a smile on their faces. One way to do that is to create a fun activity that is related to the book you’re reading.
