One of the great benefits of choosing a book that has been around so long – the paperback copy is super inexpensive and easy to find. This is a good book for a home library, I believe.
I promise the book club picks won’t always revolve around movies, but there are some exciting movies coming out the last few months for YA book-lovers. Last month’s book Wonder was made into an awesome movie, and we are just as excited to see the movie for A Wrinkle in Time!
Here’s the trailer to get you excited! (Releases March 9.)
(Since the movie comes out early next month, I wanted to read the book in February to get ready.)
Two of my girls had already read (and enjoyed this month), but they read it again. They read lots of books more than once. Izzy and I read it for the first time. Though it is definitely a science-fantasy book, which may or may not appeal to everyone, at it’s core it is a book about light fighting against darkness and goodness winning out in the end. That is always an uplifting theme for anyone.
Activity Ideas for A Wrinkle in Time
For this month’s activity, I wanted to think of something that captured the concept of time, so what better than a family time capsule.
I created a Time Capsule Questionnaire. We may or may not have eaten ice cream after we filled them out.
You can download the Time Capsule Questionnaire (for personal use only).
I put the completed papers in an envelope with the date we’re allowed to open it. I’m putting this envelope flat against the bottom of my drawer underneath my socks. I’ll find it easily in 10 years, but it won’t get in my way in the meantime. I know we’re supposed to bury time capsules in the yard, but I’m not sure we’ll live here in 10 years! And even if we did, we’ll forget!
Of course, we are going to go see the movie in March, probably as a Spring Break activity. The more time we spend together, the better!
From my home to yours,
