Book and Field Trip Club for Tweens
Wednesdays 10:00am-12:00pm
Cost $30.00

Book Clubs
Book Club meets at the Walter-Billings home. Located near Milwaukee, Irving Park and Cicero in Chicago.

We will meet, discuss and do activities based on the books that we are reading. Please try to make sure your child has the opportunity to read the book before coming to the book club meetings. It is much more fun for everyone when all the kids are excited about the book they have just finished. It does not matter if your child is able to read the book themselves, they can read it with a parent or listen to it on audio book. If there is some unforeseen circumstance and your child was not able to finish the book, please still do send them to the meeting.

I will help with transportation arrangements and organizing parent chaperones for the field trips.
