The BEST 4th Episode Ever : "The Giver"

Updated: Jun 9, 2020

Welcome back to the beginning of a wonderful week; well, at least I hope it will be a fantastic week for every one of you. In this week's, we show we rate The Giver.

We also discuss the sequels that Lois Lowry wrote after The Giver. Holly also tells us of a talk that she gave at the Book Expo of America back in 2012. The BBCE tells some silly stories of some false teachings they once had and how their thinking was challenged and changed. 

We then used a rating scale to flesh out more of our thoughts and opinions about the book.

Just in case you forgot our scale, here's a refresher.

B - Better than most

C - Could've been better

Ideas for hosting a book club for The Giver

Food : Anything with potatoes, candied apples, or basically any food.

Attire : Black and White or Identical clothing

Activity : Pass along a skill you have or create a tessellation .

Favors : A memory book

Location/Decor : Library 

Music : Use the playlist Katie made for the BBCE:) It's pretty random but super great.

Please let us know if you have a book club on The Giver. We would love to see what creative ideas you have.
