An easy mix for our fifth month!
Science fiction and fantasy rely on creating an alternate world of some sort, so there is bound to be community within most stories. How deeply you choose to dig into the topic from there is up to you.
As always, the genre is the required reading for the month; the topic is the bonus challenge. Keep in mind that science fiction and fantasy can be found in many different forms – chapter books, picture books, graphic novels, plays, even poetry. Pick a favorite, or sample across several and see what you prefer.
For an extension activity this month (if you haven’t yet, download the Eclectic Readers Club Packet to learn more about this), consider getting involved in your community. You might organize a litter pick up, volunteer some of your time, or donate supplies to a charity. This is also a suggested activity in the meeting outline below.
