CitySpace Summer Camp Recap: Book Club Week!

WBUR CitySpace Summer Camp is a six-week series providing content to families with school age children. Each week we provide an assignment to tackle and families submit photos or a video of their completed project.

Last week our campers combed through their bookshelves to share their favorite books and authors with us. Some of their choices have beautiful illustrations or crazy characters. Other books have funny, exciting or unexpected plots. And quite a few leave them with inspiring messages and great lessons!  Here are some highlights:

Thanks to everyone who participated in book club week. Read on...and on...and on! While we couldn't squeeze every video into the recap, you can see full versions of them in our photo album here.
