Can you imagine having a guide to infuse fun into your homeschooling and make literary discussions come alive every month? Today, Colleen chats with Mary Wilson about “found” poetry, book/movie matchups and the possibility of great adventures with book clubs! Mary’s “Celebrate a Book” guides can help create family-friendly gatherings that bring whimsy and delight to readers of all ages and ability. This is a fun conversation about celebrating all things BOOKS!
