Why read alone when we can read together?
The best books keep readers up ‘til dawn. And if you love reading, there’s no doubt you also love talking about your favorite stories.
Unlike other hobbies or extracurricular activities, reading is a solo activity, and it can feel lonely when you don’t have a group of awesome bookworms to connect with.
All discussions are moderated by our founder, Lauren Bercuson, an elementary school librarian, passionate reader, prominent children’s book reviewer, and mom of two. Lauren knows kids, she knows kids’ books, and her passion is connecting young readers through the best of children’s literature.
Our community is vibrant, inclusive, and oh-so-much fun, bringing book lovers together in one dynamic and cherished space. Our kids’ book clubs rock!

E, age 11 | Virginia because I get to meet people who love books as much as I do!
I get to be introduced to some books I would not have read if I were not in a kids book club. They ended up being really good books! I think it’s awesome to see how other people interpret the books differently than I do.
