Building Character Through Books
Number the Stars – Book Guide
We all want our children to have strong character. It’s a daily (sometimes hourly) effort to reach their hearts and guide them to better understanding of it. What will have the most impact?
Help them engage with powerful examples in stories.
Intentional engagement with a story helps a child feel invested in what happens to a story’s characters. This is where the Building Character Through Books (BCTB) curriculum series comes in.
The Number the Stars Book Guide is a month long literature-based learning guide that walks you through the story with these weekly sections:
- Read & Explore
- Weekly chapters to read
- Story-related learning topics (history, geography, nature, etc.)
- Expand & Discuss
- Related reading ideas (poems and picture books)
- Hands-on activities & project ideas
- Meaningful discussion questions & prompts
- Story Celebration Plan
- Book party ideas for the final week
- Step-by-step Story Celebration plan
Each book highlighted in the Building Character Through Books series has been thoughtfully chosen based on the following requirements:
- Does the story compel readers to connect with characters and their struggles?
- Does the storytelling allow for meaningful discussions?
- Does the story inspire readers to desire stronger character?
