We are getting started a little bit late this spring, mainly because my girls and I meet outdoors and this winter has been COLD! Essentially, we only have 8 weeks for book circle, but I am excited to see how many of these great reads we get through!
Each semester carries a loose theme. Last Fall, we read about girls from different parts of the world who overcame obstacles of loss, transition and family crises. This spring, we are coming back home to the US, and looking at the lives of girls from early 1900’s through the Depression Era. Throwing in Because of Winn Dixie, which occurs a few decades later, because I try to make it a point each semester to throw in a story about a girl and her animal friend 🙂
So here it is! A big thanks to AMightyGirl.com for always guiding me toward the best finds for us!
And last but not least, I found this little GEM today as I was looking for Depression Era content. Dalhart TX is my home town! My parents and grandparents grew up there. I was stunned when I saw this! Even if I don’t get to it for Book Circle, I am definitely going to read it with my daughter. Then send a copy to my family members.
