Read It and Eat Book Club: The 13-Story Treehouse

Read It and Eat is our monthly book club for 'tweens.  Read more about Read It and Eat here!

What We Read: The 13-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths

What We Did: While the kids ate, we discussed the book.  Then we broke into groups of 4-5 people each, and we completed the marshmallow challenge.  This challenge fit well with the book because of the building element, and because the book features a marshmallow machine. 

The kids were happy as clams working in groups on the marshmallow challenge!  Bonus: it was easy and cheap to prepare. 

I would totally, totally recommend this activity for a book club!  The book was a good one, too; it was a quick read with lots of pictures and tons of silliness, and we had a great discussion about which genre it might be considered.
