IMAJINE THAT SUMMER BOOK CLUB




Welcome to the Imajine That Book Club!

Imajine That Book Club Mind in the Making

Held in partnership with Mind in the Making and First Book, we hope you’ll join us to share the love of reading with your child, while also helping build the essential life skills they’ll need to cope in our multitasking, multimedia, modern world.

Our monthly book club starts on the first Monday of each month. Each month, you’ll find right here our picks of books for children from newborn to age 5.  

Working with our partners at Mind in the Making and First Book, our book choices also come with tip sheets for parents to help combine reading with tips for building these essential life skills.
