Today's post comes from Stacy Brown of Davis Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. What a splendid idea it was to incorporate digital apps into their projects. What an even more wonderful thing it was to bring mothers and daughters together to celebrate that girls are beautiful for being themselves. Well done!

We have hosted quite a few book clubs. Here are some highlights:
We had our boys book club read Ghost by Jason Reynolds and then create their own tennis shoes using augmented reality apps.
Our girls book club read Bubble by Stewart Foster and made bubble tea and our own bubbles out of a recipe while discussing the book.
We did a mother/daughter book club with our girls and read Strong is the New Pretty by Kate Parker, a photo journalist. We had her come to visit and we took “strong selfies” of ourselves.
Our boys also read The Wild Robot by Peter Brown and we made robot paper toys. The boys have an upcoming Skype visit with author Jennifer Brown this Friday to discuss .
Our final girls book club of the year will be on Monday of next week discussing Prairie Evers by Ellen Airgood. We are still planning our activity for that one though.
