More Book Club Book Recommendations
If I haven't mentioned it several times before, book clubs are my favorite school counselor led group. I like the use of bibliotherapy to work with each group (books are so versatile to reach so many types of groups). Each year I look forward to adding more books to my book club collection. Here are some more to consider if you're looking for new books:
Brown Girl Dreaming, author: Jacqueline Woodson- This is an autobiography, written in poetry form (the title of the book says it all).
Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, author: Wendy Mass- Book with a mystery that I think students will find very interesting. This book also deals with being in a single parent home, having a deceased parent and friendship.
All of the Above, author: Shelley Pearsall- My students and I both LOVED this book! A great book about overcoming obstacles to the fullest.
The Fourteenth Goldfish, author: Jennifer Holm- A funny sci-fi book that (humorously) discusses family dynamics, friendship and coming of age.
The Hundred Dresses, author: Eleanor Estes- This book is on many counselor book lists. Deals with bullying and acceptance of others.
What other books have you read that you think will be a great addition to a counselor led book club? Please share below.
