Book Clubs for Kids

Do you think a book club would be a good way to help kids improve their reading level/understanding?

My daughter is in first grade and has started reading simple chapter books - she has read a couple of the Magic Treehouse series. One of the other mom's in her class and I are thinking of having our girls do a book club - they would each read the same book and then we would have a playdate and discuss the book. 

I think this would help with reading comprehension. What do you think?

    I don't think I would hurt. We are all big readers here. When my boys were younger they loved the Highlights magazine too

    We did this with my daughter and some of her classmates for two summers.  The girls had a lot of fun with it...

    That would be a great idea! Junie B Jones is also a nice series.

    That would be a great way to promote comprehension!  Any time you can get kids to talk about what their reading is a GREAT thing!  Do it! :)

    I think anything you can do to encourage more reading is good.  I would think that discussing the book would be helpful for comprehension, too.

    She has a subscription to Hilights and enjoys them. We are going to get her a subscription to the American Girl magazine for Christmas
