Book Club, Boys’ Edition: “George Washington’s Socks”

I have been so excited about this month’s book club event, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! 

We’re studying the American Revolution right now, and so the boys read Book Club, Boys' Edition: "George Washington's Socks" @ A Nest in the Rocks

They set up camp first.  There were three dads, six book club boys, and one little brother.  They pitched four tents and gathered firewood, and then we settled down to discuss the story.  The boys had lots to say about who the villains were in the story.  Woodruff does an excellent job of portraying the humanity of the soldiers in each army, and the boys caught that information.  They chose sticks to whittle for roasting their hot dogs for dinner and went on a long hike.

They spent a lot of time at the water – throwing in sticks, rocks, and whatever else they could find.  One mom rented a canoe and a kayak, and the boys took turns paddling around this part of the lake.

I think this is one book club event that will be remembered for a very long time.

What are your kids reading right now?

  1. How fun! I have never heard of a boys book club like that!

    My son is very into non-fiction, anything with facts about animals and their habitats and behaviors and he is all over it. But I just had him check out a fiction book from the library, so right now he is reading Gregor the Overlander and is loving it.

      I haven’t heard of ‘Gregor the Overlander’ – we’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!
