A week ago we met to discuss Peter Pan, our children’s literature choice for the year. And as we took our minds on a merry trip down memory lane, we took ourselves back to our summer meeting place: Paradise 🙂
See! summer = blended coffee beverages. yum!
Our discussion flowed through topics like: what do we really think of Peter? What might the book have to say about a parent’s role in growing imaginative children? Would you want a dog for a nanny? as well as various comparisons between the book and film adaptations.
One of our favorite aspects of the book was ridiculousness that was peppered amongst the pirate fights and pert pixies.
Do you know what else is favorite? 1/2 price cookies before closing time!
Join us for our next meeting! We’re giving you 2 months to tackle this puppy: Gone With The Wind
by Margaret Mitchell. It’s a big-un. So, we’re giving you TWO months to read it. So, no excuses? I don’t remember where we’re meeting or when. So just start reading the book, and we’ll fill you in on that later. 🙂
Wish I could give you some fairy dust this week! …But since I’m not Tinker Bell here are some “lovely thoughts” to get you thinking before book club on Thursday…
“You just think lovely wonderful thoughts, and they lift you up in the air.”
The magic of dreams are never ending! Do you remember your dreams when you wake? What does your Neverland look like?
A dog for a nanny, a mom cleaning and straightening children’s brains… what was your favorite unrealistic part or scene of this story?
The loss of childhood is inevitable, what do you miss most from your youth? When did you loose your ability to fly? Aka: At what point in your life did you start considering yourself an adult? …if you are, in fact, a grown-up 🙂
Assuming you’ve seen the Disney version of Peter Pan, what are your thoughts on the differences? and similarities?
If you are a mother, how do you encourage your children to dream? Also, Mommies of preschoolers this is an excellent resource to accompany the book from Homeschool Creations: Peter Pan Preschool Pack
Peter Pan discussion:
this Thursday May 12th
Paradise Bakery & Cafe
Maybe it’s because we’ve never met in January* before or maybe it’s just because it’s winter in this great Hoosier state… but last night was the first time we had to cancel and postpone a meeting due to weather.

I’ve been told there is some confusion about when we are meeting in Dec. (And I know this is my fault and I’m sorry) BUT we are NOT meeting tonight, but Monday the 14th. I changed the date but I didn’t make it clear or call attention to the fact that I switched. Please don’t come tonight BUT please DO come on the 14th!! If you know anyone else who also was confused please share with them as well.
thank you and happy reading!
