7 ways to set up and run a children's book group

It’s targeted at 8-12 year olds and we’ve been going about 7 months now. It brings me enormous pleasure! I thought it would be a fun idea to bring together lots of mini case studies about how different people have set up book groups for children in the hope that it might encourage some of you to consider setting up one in your community or your child’s school. You’ll find lots of tips and practical advice in these case studies and just maybe you’ll also find yourself thinking that you too could run something similar. Case Study 1: Gita @storyvilled “I’m writing this post after the Chatterbooks group I run weekly at our local primary school. Today, in forty minutes we: 1) Returned last week’s books and gave feedback. 2) Designed our own planets, thinking about distance from the sun, number of moons, gravity, atmosphere and planetary life (this month’s theme is Science Fiction). What do they like? Join the Guardian children's books site as a reading group. We’re delighted to say that teachers, librarians and other reading group co-ordinators can join the site as a whole group, rather than each child in the group having to sign up individually – perfect for school, class, library and any other kind of book group!

Chatterbooks reading clubs help children build a lifelong reading habit. Because everything changes when we read. We've been coordinating Chatterbooks - the UK's largest network of children's reading groups - since 2001. 10,000 children belong to Chatterbooks groups, which are run in libraries and schools to encourage reading enjoyment. The groups are run by librarians, teachers, teaching assistants, or volunteers - anyone with a passion for reading. Chatterbooks is a flexible model that can be used with children from 4 up to 12, for all different abilities and in targeted or mixed groups.

For all Chatterbooks resources, including a downloadable quick guide, the latest newsletter and all our Chatterbooks activity packs, go to chatterbooks.org.uk.
