We talked with the author of The Hear Me Read Bible, Dr. Mary Manz Simon, about the importance of reading with your children and letting them read to you. She also shares tips on how to get this started in your home!
One of the things I love about hearing from readers is learning the many ways you’re all using The Messengers series. Classrooms, family settings, youth groups, book clubs . . . the list goes on. And the list overlaps! For example, some classrooms use Discovered or (and?) Concealed in a book club unit. Several schools have book clubs after school. Some have summer book clubs for their youth. So you’re probably seeing the pattern for today . . . book clubs! Whether it’s with your school, your church, or your book club of friends, here are some ideas to help your meeting over Concealed come to life.
In this edition of the Writers' Roundtable, we sat our authors down to talk about how speaking engagements can impact their writing and engage readers. Our authors also shared a few best practices they have discovered along the way.
The requests continue for help to teach and lead discussion for my novel, Discovered in The Messengers series. And I’m so happy to oblige! I’ve heard that both adult and youth book clubs alike are reading this book (yay!), so I’ll try to touch on some activities and ideas that could apply to both situations. As a leader of your book club (or teacher who is going with a book club vibe for your unit), you’ll want to adapt according to your group.
