If you are looking for new, interesting foods to share with the book club kids that they may have never eaten before, Every Soul A Star isn’t the book for you. Just as the stars and the constellations are the same yet special each time we look up at the night sky, the food in this book is classic and delicious.
For something quick and easy, licorice is featured several times. Try to avoid spilling it on the floor like Jack did and having to use the 5 second rule!
Or, if you are holding your book club meeting in the summer, do as the campers at the Moonshadow do and have a barbeque–serve up hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, and cookies (just don’t forget, like Ally’s parents did, to label those if they contain peanuts or other allergens)! Summer can never have too many BBQ’s.
And if you are hosting a BBQ, you may as well make it an evening event and stick around for some star viewing. While all the blog activities can be done in a library meeting room any time of the day, you can easily go beyond a traditional meeting and make this an event no one will forget.
Check out local astronomical societies, nature centers, colleges or universities and find a guide to help your group really see some of the constellations, planets, moon and other elements of the night sky in your area. Some are even offered free. And, don’t forget your toilet paper rolls!!
