Novel Kids Book Club is a book club open to readers of all ages who are interested in reading and discussing middle grade novels. The books vary in reading level and interests, but most have characters ranging in ages between 10-14. Content of book choices and our discussion is considered to be comfortable to us (as parents and booksellers) for kids as young as third grade and as old as 14, who are interested in reading the books we choose. We always offer a free snack and the activities are meant to be fun and inclusive, regardless of how much of the book you have read.
