Mother-daughter book clubs are a great way to encourage reading, bonding, and socializing among mothers, daughters, and their friends. But these clubs can do more than that, suggests educational psychologist and parenting coach Lori Day. They can create a safe and empowering haven where girls can freely discuss and navigate issues surrounding girlhood. In Her Next Chapter, ...more

I loved this book. The concept of a mother-daughter book club was something that was alien to me prior to reading the book, however the introductory chapters explain how it would work, and what the potential benefits are (other than literacy!) As a bookworm myself I love to read books with my daughter but the mother-daughter book club concept means that that connection can last longer and go deeper. As I write this my daughter is 2 years old, but I almost can't wait for her to grow a little bit ...more

Well, you can see how I spent my holiday. What a great resource! I've been sharing books with my children for a while now. It will be interesting to have our own book club and talk a bit more about the books we read.

Upon reading Lori Day’s Her Next Chapter: How Mother-Daughter Book Clubs Can Help Girls Navigate Malicious Media, Risky Relationships, Girl Gossip, and So Much More, I am completely floored with possibilities. Her Next Chapter, at first glance, may be meant as an organizational tool for beginning and maintaining effective Mother-Daughter book clubs (which is covered in the Part 1 chapters); but Day’s book additionally discusses current issues and obstacles our young girls are facing, ways of ...more

An excellent book, and not just for women thinking about starting a book club. As a feminist, I've always known that raising my kids--boys or girls--with a firm grasp of feminism was important to me. As the mother of a daughter who is fast approaching puberty, I think now more than ever about how I can educate her, talk to her, and make her aware of the issues that will soon be arising in her life. I've read a fair amount of books on feminism and read many articles, so I have a good grasp of the ...more

Excellent book about book clubs and books in general for daughters (also other media). Highly recommended!

This is a book I can really get behind. I'm an avid reader (obviously) and I know how important it is for children to read. I had planned, in a few years, for my daughter and I to join a Mother-Daughter book club, so I was already in the choir on this one.

For anyone who is in my position of being sold on Mother-Daughter book clubs, who might be considering, or has never heard of them, this is a great book. Day sets up the book quite well--the first 3 chapters are devoted to the mechanics of the

I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. (Paperback)

I liked it, and found it useful and insightful. It covered a wide range of topics that would interest or would affect mother-daughter book clubs. Most of the suggestions and information can also be of great use in general, outside of a book club setting, and I found that it could also be applied in other situations.

The book sets out to demonstrate the value of mother-daughter book clubs as a way to empower young girls and provide an

Her Next Chapter is the inspiring and engaging how-to book you didn’t know you needed! Using literature, movies and internet media as a springboard for connection and dialogue, Lori Day and her daughter, Charlotte, have cracked the code for easing the flow of ideas between moms and their girls. Genius tips on engaging our daughters in deeper conversations are reminiscent of sneaking pureed spinach or julienned zucchini into the brownie mix... a painless and easy way to take something we are ...more

If you love your daughter, read this book. Lori Day and her own daughter, Charlotte Kugler, do an exquisite job of explaining the myriad benefits of starting a mother daughter book club: self-confidence and reinforcing racial identity are the the top of my list. Even better, they tell you how to do it, replete with with excellent book and movie recommendations and discussion questions to boot! A must read.
