Tween Book Club
TWEEN BOOK CLUB
Kids ages 9-12 are encouraged to participate in our Tween Book Club. Each quarter we will suggest a book to read, followed up by an optional get-together where kids can share thoughts and ideas about the book.
Here’s what one of our readers says about the Tween Book Club:
The Aldersgate Tween Book Club
By Colin Sullivan
“I like the Aldersgate Tween Book Club because it gives everyone a chance to speak for themselves and say their opinion about the book. Another reason why I like the book club is we get to read fun books that are a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Also, every time you come to a meeting, you get to eat something delicious like tacos, ice cream, or popcorn. The leader, Ms. Elaine, is very nice and encouraging to us in the book club. She asks us a lot of questions and keeps the book club on topic.
“My favorite book that I have read in the book club is called “Mr. Lemonchello’s Library.” I like it because it is about a mystery that the kids in the book have to figure out and whoever figures it out first will become famous. I recommend this book and the Tween Book Club to all kids who like to read!”

El Deafo by CeCe Bell
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s El Deafo! A Newbery Honor book, El Deafo recounts author and illustrator Cece Bell’s story of hearing loss at a young age and the experiences she faced adjusting to a Phonic Ear®—all the while trying to fit in at school and make friends. Cece Bell’s important lesson is that “Our differences are our superpowers.”
We’ll meet to talk about the book and enjoy a special Presidents’ Day treat.
