NPR's Back-Seat Book Club

NPR has a new book club -- for kids! The Back-Seat Book Club is for kid who likes to read. Every month, NPR picks a Back-Seat Book Club selection. After reading the selection, then readers can send in questions. At month's end, some of your questions to the book's author during our afternoon radio program, All Things Considered.

The first selection for the new book club started last month, was Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. This month the selection is the classic, Phantom Tollboth by Norton Juster. See photos sent in by book club members reading Phantom Tollboth.

So many of my friend listen to NPR during their daily commute to work. What a good idea to get them involved in children's reading by setting up a Back-Seat Book Club. Way to go, NPR!
