About two years ago I set up a kids bookclub in my home town. The bookclub was for home educated kids; a chance to meet up and explore books.
My motivation in setting up the group was to give my own home educated kids the chance to regularly meet others in a focussed session. The focus was to explore books creatively together, because books for me have always been a creative starting point, a beginning.
Two years on, the bookclub is now two bookclubs, one aimed at pre-teens, and the second at teen readers. We run like any bookclub, reading one book each month, and meeting up to discuss, and also to create.
To keep my interest active, and to celebrate the creativity of these kids, I have decided to keep this blog.
