ALL NEW: Read the World Summer Book Club 2018

Written by Jamie C. Martin of Simple Homeschool

Here we go again, friends! I’m here today to kick off our 3rd Annual Read the World Summer Book Club, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

It will be our third summer reading our way around the world, one book at a time! Last summer we had over 6,500 families from six continents and dozens of countries join us.

And this year will be better than ever–with a new logo, new printables, and other fun changes, so that even if you’ve participated before it will still feel fresh.

We’re even adding a private Facebook group that will make it more interactive, allowing us all to share from our own corners of the world! We’ll post new videos, recipes, resources and more there.

It’s simple to participate, and we’re hoping that new families as well as those who have been with us since the beginning will jump in for this fun, global adventure.

Just take a peek:
