This guide to book clubs is organized around books in four categories of readers: family, mother-daughter, father-son, and reader's rap, a child-only program. Titles are listed along with reading level, genre, awards, plot summary, characterization, books with similar themes, and discussion questions. Soltan also explains how to start and run a group. More popular, mainstream books are excluded. Indexes are separated by title, theme and subject, grade level, genre, and author. Soltan is a former children's librarian, and the book is based on many book clubs she has led. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
