Parent Book Club 

“The pleasure of reading is doubled when sharing with others.”

Parent Book Club is a great opportunity for all parents at Selborne Primary School to meet once a month in the school and share the same book they have been reading. 

It is a fantastic occasion to escape into the world of books, exploring new books as a group and enjoying discussing the chosen book.

There is no formal way to join, just showing up gets you involved.


“Be seen reading. If you don’t, they won’t.”

Parents are the most important reading role models for children and young people; who are supported, encouraged and motivated in order to be positive, healthy and good life long learner. And usually, children are more affected by what parents do than by what parents say.


Some feedback from parents joining Parent Book Club:

“It is a very good idea to have Book Club for parents in our school, because we all like to talk about what we have just read, whether we loved the book or hated it and how much applies to our own life.”

“It is absolutely true that we are the role models for our children. After joining Parent Book Club and start reading, I can see my children enjoying reading their own books and choosing what they want to read without being told and pushed to do.”

“My children were happy seeing me reading and interested to read my book.”

“The books have led to great discussions during the meetings, and I am always excited to read the next book and discuss about it with other parents.”


Parent Book Club Meetings are once a month, in the Family Room at Selborne Primary School from 2.00 - 3.00 pm.

It would be great to see you and discuss the book over some coffee/tea and biscuits.
