In this book group for parents of boys ages 1-13 years old, we will read engaging children's literature featuring fully-realized boy characters and discuss the story in an effort to better understand the challenges we face while raising our boys - and the challenges our boys face at home and in the world at large. Co-led by Jarrett Dapier, a teen servicest librarian and father, and Betty Mac Kune Karrer, a former family systems therapist at Northwestern University, this book group gives parents a chance to understand their sons better and learn strategies for giving boys the support they need to thrive.
Our May book will be DEAR MR. HENSHAW by Beverly Cleary. Please register online, at the children's desk, at the Loft desk, or by calling (847) 448-8610, and then read the book before our meeting (copies available at the children's desk).
If you are a two-parent household, both parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
