HASH(0x9703a114) out of 5 stars Mother Daughter Book Club: One of My Favorites 31 Aug. 2007
By C. Samuels - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This warm, inspiring book offers perhaps one of the best ideas ever - creating a mother-daughter book club for preteens in the service of building a communication network for those tough adolescent years. In the process the growth among both moms and daughters is lovely and the suggested books on the money. It suddenly occurs to me that it's kind of a predecessor to Reading Lolita In Tehran in that it is structured around meetings of the group over the years. I've given away countless copies.

HASH(0x96c6096c) out of 5 stars One Persons Journey Through A World of Books Thoughts: 19 Jan. 2010
By Sheila A. Dechantal - Published on
Format: Paperback
Style 1: Mother: "I have an idea, let's start a mother daughter book club. We can assign books that are better literature than those books you read all the time. It will give us a chance to talk about the really important issues of life. And when you hear the other mothers opinions you will see I am not the only one who thinks like I do".

I can hear the footsteps fade as she runs the other direction.

Style 2: Mother: "What would you think about inviting a group of your friends over and their moms to read books and then have a get together with refreshments where you girls would get to relax and we'd all get to share what we thought of the story and do some fun activity with it?" page 43

And with that, Shireen Dodson's Mother Daughter Book Club is born. This is the story of a group of mothers and their daughters and how their relationship was strengthened and changed by starting this monthly reading club. I am going to be honest here, this book made me gush. And now - I am going to gush about it to you so if you feel rain gear is required while I pour my heart out to you about this book then go - change... I will wait....

OK. First of all it is easy to say that this book had me at "book club" books on books have always been a weakness. And really - this book is not even a fit for me. I have two sons. Two grown sons.... no daughters.

BUT.... if I did have daughters, this would be the book.... this is the book. First Shirleen writes this different from what I had expected. I thought it was going to be mostly great book choices for mothers and daughters to share. It does have that - but it is not the main focus. Shireen takes us from how the idea came about, how they started, what went right - what went wrong.... and even how this book became a reality.

There are great topics such as:

* Girl by Girl, Mom by Mom Building a Discussion Group
* Ice Breaker Games - for new friends and old
* Finding Books That Believe In Girl

and much more... there are even tips in this book that I found would be fun and useful to apply to my book club.

In the back section of the book there are great book choices with book titles, descriptions, discussion questions, and project ideas that tie in with the book.

The more I read - the more I liked this book. I would highly recommend it as a great read to get your own Mother Daughter Book Club going or even for great reading ideas to do with your daughter(s) on your own.
