Out of this World: Meet the KidsPost Summer Book Club members

These literary world travelers explored cities, planets, forests and mysterious old homes

We at KidsPost had an amazing time on our “Out of This World” reading ad­ven­ture. We explored unknown planets, mysterious woods, forgotten cities and places where time and space were ripped apart. We even traveled to places found in books inside of books. (Two trips in one!)

We were happy to have company on our journey. More than 450 of you joined the Summer Book Club. We hope that you enjoyed the selections, but, more important, that you continue to search for terrific books, or ones you would call “out of this world.”
