March is Reading Month Book Clubs

Hosted by Oakland School's

Let’s celebrate March is reading month by connecting as a community of readers. This is a free, virtual book club for families to attend together. PreK through third grade readers will read The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson. Readers in grades 4 through 12 will read New Kid by Jerry Craft.


During our time together, we’ll share our joys and wonderings about the books we read. This will be a fun, relaxing evening. Bring your book, some of your favorite parts of the books, and your own yummy treats to our Book Club party!


Whether you’ve read the whole book, parts, or none, join to share the joy in our stories!


Copies of The Day You Begin will be provided for Oakland County PreK to Grade 3 students who are attending that book club. One per household.


Copies of New Kid will be provided for Oakland County students in grades 4 to 12 who attend the book clubs and did not already receive a copy from the African American Read-In with Jerry Craft. One per household.

Thank you to all the families and educators who joined us on February 24 for the African American Read-In with Jerry Craft. If you missed it or loved it so much you want to see it again, the event recording will be available through March 24.


Information to access the recording will be available soon.
