IdahoPTV launches its first virtual book club

Virtual Book Club WordPress (1)We have launched our new Virtual Book Club for kids grades 3-6. Our first book will be “The Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson. We will meet once each week via Zoom to explore the book together. Learn more and sign up for the book club.

Any child in grades 3-6 can participate in the virtual book club. If you cannot afford a book, please email me at samantha.hill@idahoptv.org. Financial assistance is available and no child will be turned away due to a financial need.

The book club is virtual, via Zoom. The meetings will be password protected so we can ensure the group will stay private and safe. Prior to the first group meeting, we will send you a link to join the session.

Parents are not required to attend the video call with their child, but are welcome to if they feel more comfortable. We will not be recording the discussions in order to protect the privacy of participants. If you have other children in the house who would enjoy being part of the club, they are welcome to participate. We would love to see entire families be part of this!

  • Each week, I will email audio recordings of each chapter to support kids who prefer to follow along while listening.
  • You can purchase a copy of the book on Amazon for $7.99.
  • If you need assistance getting the book, please let us know when you RSVP. No family will be turned away due to financial need.
  • Please fill out this short form to RSVP for the book club.

If any questions come up, please don’t hesitate to email me at samantha.hill@idahoptv.org.

I am looking forward to starting this adventure with your family!
