Welcome back to another month of the book club that we are starting. This book club is for anyone, kids, teens, adults, it doesn’t matter! This month our theme is Celebrations. This can mean anything, any holiday, whatever you celebrate!
Celebrations Around the World
I found a cute book at our library called Celebrations Around the World by Katy Halford. I love that this is not just the holidays that we as a family celebrate, but all the holidays that are celebrated around the world!
I do not know what I will do with the kids and this book at this time, but I am sure we will come up with some activities to help us learn and celebrate all the new holidays we will learn about.
I hope you will come back at the end of the month and see what we have learned and how we took this book and made it come alive in our homeschool!
There are other families who will be reading books about celebrations with us this month, check them out right here:

Do you want to join? What are some books on celebrations that you will be reading this month with your family, or yourself?
We are doing something new this year. We are going to be reading picture books based on the month. I am going to share our October Book List before the month starts and at the end of the month, I am going to share what we did with these books.

Where to Find Books
We are getting our book ideas from Read-Aloud Revival (RAR). They have a great list of picture books for each month. This makes this part easy for me. The tough part, reading them and coming up with activities for them. We won’t do activities for all of the books, but we will do something that will center around the theme of the books.
Not only will we be grabbing books from the list on RAR, but I am also grabbing books from Your Morning Baskets and the Fall 3.0 guide. I will be sharing more about this in a week or two.
Our October Book List
This month, we will be reading books like The Pumpkin Runner, Fall Walk, Strega Nona’s Harvest, Seeds Move, and Swirl by Swirl. With these books, you can see we will be getting ready for the fall and the harvest that happens.
I am excited to make a few fun printables for the kids to do. I am thinking word finds, and things to do with nature walks. Things that will bring these books to life and allow my kids to see this wonderful transition from summer to autumn.
Want to Join Us?
