Book Club: Elementary School Edition – Fun Books

By ThriftBooks Team • June 26, 2022

A book club for elementary school children offers a fun, interactive way to hone in on students' language, reading, and comprehension skills while building rapport with educators and each other at the same time.

Book clubs set the tone for a lifelong love of reading for children that can last well into adulthood.

Many excellent books for elementary students serve as wonderful selections for book clubs. Elementary school books that ignite the imagination encourage thoughtful discussions and engaging activities for elementary students.

Elementary School Books: Cat Kid Comic Club

One popular title for book clubs is Cat Kid Comic Club by Dav Pilkey. This is the first book in the Cat Kid Comic Club series written and illustrated by the award-winning author of the Captain Underpants series and the Dog Man series.

This graphic novel—presented in a comic-book style—is a funny, heartwarming story about Melvin, Naomi, Pedro, and the baby frogs trying to find their purpose in life.

As one of the most highly anticipated elementary school books, Cat Kid Comic Club takes readers on frog-filled adventures full of hilarity, creativity, a kaleidoscope of art styles, and more.

Cat Kid Comic Club is an excellent selection because it fosters collaboration, empathy, and independent thinking in children of all ages as it celebrates creativity and friendship.

Discussion Questions for Cat Kid Comic Club

One of the purposes of an elementary school book club is to encourage collaboration and communication among students. To get the ball rolling with your book club, here are five questions you might ask students to start the conversation:

  1. What do the Hacker brothers use to make Chubbs McSpiderbutt?
  2. What happens in Pedro's ninja comics to stop the ninjas' plan to destroy the world?
  3. What do Molly and Li'l Petey give the frogs when they realize most of them haven't made a comic?
  4. What is the one thing that Supa Fail saves when the world blows up?
  5. What happens to the monster cheese sandwich in the end?

The book features mini-comics as stories within the main story, and each one is done in a different style. Children are exposed to poetry and prose, humor and drama, and illustrations in various mediums like pastels, felt-tip markers, hand-made cardboard cut-outs, and even some made of cookies, pipe cleaners, and clay.

Discussing the book with students to encourage thought, opinion, and creativity is an excellent way for children to develop their listening, speaking, and cognitive skills.

Students also learn to listen to other student's opinions and thoughts and be respectful of others' ideas and beliefs, even if it's a different perspective.
