Reading Together: Tips for a Family Book Club

Marketing Coordinator


In today's fast-paced world, finding time to bond as a family can be a challenge. One delightful way to bring the family together is through the joy of reading. Starting a family book club not only encourages reading but also strengthens family bonds, sparks meaningful conversations, and creates lasting memories. Here are some tips to help you get started on this exciting journey.

1. Choose the Right Books

The key to a successful family book club is selecting books that appeal to all family members. Consider the age range and interests of your family. Picture books with rich illustrations can captivate younger children, while older kids might enjoy adventure or fantasy novels. Don’t shy away from classic tales or new releases like those from TaleZilla, which often have themes that resonate across generations.

2. Set a Comfortable Pace

Determine a reading schedule that suits everyone. For younger children, you might want to read together every night, while older kids and adults could read independently with weekly check-ins. The goal is to make reading a regular and enjoyable part of your family routine, without it feeling like a chore.

3. Create a Dedicated Reading Space

Designate a cozy corner in your home as the book club spot. Add comfortable seating, good lighting, and perhaps some book-themed decorations. This special space can become a haven for your family’s literary adventures.

4. Engage in Discussions

After reading, have an open discussion about the book. Ask questions that spark debate and let each family member express their views. This is a great way to develop critical thinking and communication skills in children. It’s also a chance to gain insights into each other’s perspectives.

5. Incorporate Related Activities

Enhance the experience by including activities related to the book. This could be crafting, themed meals, or even field trips. For instance, if you’re reading a book set in a zoo, plan a family outing to your local zoo.

6. Keep a Book Club Journal

Encourage each family member to write down their thoughts, favorite quotes, or drawings related to the book. This journal can be a wonderful keepsake to look back on and see how everyone’s thoughts and tastes have evolved.

7. Use Technology to Your Advantage

Incorporate e-books and audiobooks, especially for family members who are always on the go. Apps and websites can also provide discussion guides and activity ideas.

8. Celebrate Your Achievements

After finishing each book, celebrate as a family. This could be as simple as making a special dessert or as grand as a costume party themed around the book. Celebrations are a fun way to motivate everyone to keep reading.


A family book club is more than just reading together; it's about building relationships, sharing experiences, and creating a lifelong love of books. By following these tips, you can turn reading into an exciting and enriching family activity.
