Mother Daughter Book Group

Can you see the disappointment on my face? Obviously not, but it’s there.

I think the Christmas break curbed the enthusiasm for our Mother/Daughter book group, considering we only had 3 moms/girls there tonight. Either that or it’s just one more thing families have to add to their already over-booked schedules.

In spite of our small number, the 3 girls that attended enjoyed themselves. Sarah, our book group leader prepared thoughtful, probing questions. They insisted the mothers not contribute, but it’s hard to sit quietly. I was hoping to talk about one of the themes – accepting people for who they are, but they were more concerned about falling in love with the Prince of Spain. That’s OK too.

I’m pushing forward with this endeavor – even if Daisy daughter and I are the last ones meeting. Because I think it's important and we are worth it.

Next book: Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown, by Maud Hart Lovelace

  1. Dont feel bad about your small numbers. If we get 2 people to come out to our book club, I'm excited. We always have such a low turn out. These Betsy books look cute

  2. Keep going! As long as it means something to your daughter you know it's important!

  3. Keep with it! It will work out. And truthfully, sometimes the meeting with 6 people are the ones where you end up discussing the book the most.

  4. I think it great that you have a mother/daughter book club. I love reading books together with my daughter. It's a good way to see what is in the hearts of our young girls and to strengthen the bond.
