I consider this an atypical children’s picture book in that I would share it with older kids too. There is a lot of information to unpack here and I think it could easily be differentiated up and down. This set is probably best suited for the upper end of that range.
During my Homeschooling years, I ran a monthly Book Club, from Babies to Teens. Kids would choose a title from that month’s list based on level and interest and come back the next month ready to discuss and interact over the book. Prepping always took more time than I wanted. I often wished I could find simple sets of Discussion Questions paired with an age appropriate, or differentiable, activity. BOOK CLUB sets serve that purpose. They would also work for Literature Circles or Learning Centers.
