For Families

Anyone can create a Project Cornerstone Virtual Book Club by connecting friends, neighbors, and classmates via FaceTime or Zoom.

One adult can read our selected book(s) aloud, or you can access the narration video (see below). Your Virtual Book Club can then go through the lesson plan and discussion together. To take the lesson further, you can do the activities at home with your family.
