Our Family Dinner Book Club selection for the month of March is James Herriot’s Treasury for Children. Here you’ll find a menu that can be prepared with the help of your children, and will hopefully be a fun and interactive activity for the whole family. Head over to Growing Book by Book for some talking points to get the conversation started as well as an idea for a family service project. Then visit Sunny Day Family for a fun craft. We invite you to share a picture from your dinner with us anytime during the month on our Family Dinner Book Club Facebook page.
James Herriot’s Treasury for Children is a compilation of stories written by an English vet based on his real life experiences. Katie loved flipping through this large book, looking at the photos, and choosing which story to read next. Our favorite was The Market Square Dog and we decided to have our own picnic just like the vet and his wife have with the dog they are nursing back to health. What was your favorite story in this collection?
