Follow us throughout November as Marie Arrington MAT, Educational Specialist shares the benefits of her Navigating Through The Novel services, especially framed around a HOLIDAY BOOK CLUB

Holidays are one of the busiest times of years! Between parties, days off from school and other festivities that seem to fill the calendar, it is hard to keep up! However, one thing that does not have to get ‚Äúlost in the mix‚Äù is your child‚Äôs reading routine. Marie is offering a holiday book club series to help ensure your child does not skip a beat when it comes to their regular reading routine, for school or pleasure, while on their holiday breaks! 

Benefit #3: Book clubs offer a safe, friendly place for your child to meet new peers. The social component is critical because as I previously highlighted, it not only provides a format for children to share their thoughts on a book, but it also teaches certain social skills. Through the book clubs, we practice turn-taking, how to have an appropriate reaction to another person‚Äôs different belief, and many other skills. The skills we practice and learn in this setting can then be applied to other group settings (i.e., the classroom). 

Students can use a recommended book or one from their list.  Read more about Child and Family Development Navigating Through The Novel services here.
