Help Pick the Next Book Club Read

Help PickDid you know that TIO has a book club? Well it does. We have our own cozy little corner on Goodreads where we can read books about orphans and engage in discussion about them. I’m currently brainstorming ways to bring the fun onto the blog as well, but if you have a Goodreads account you could just join the club.

Anyway. We’re in the process of picking our next book to read. Over the summer we read Orphan Justice, which was a big hit with everyone. In fact, there may be a guest post about it sometime in the near future. Now we need to decide on something new.

The choices are Becoming Home, The Global Orphan Crisis, or The Connected Child. Or we could forgo doing a new book and dig deeper into Orphan Justice. Each book has different strengths. Becoming Home is a very short book that gets straight to the point, raises a lot of thought provoking ideas, and challenges Christians to do their best to do the right things for the right reasons. The Global Orphan Crisis is a much longer book that emphasizes facts and statistics about, you guessed it, the global orphan crisis. This one would be especially good for discussion because it features “food for thought” questions at the end of each chapter. The Connected Child is great for understanding why adopted kids behave the way they do and how to respond to them. It’s more of a parenting book, but there’s plenty to be gleaned different demographics as well.

So, help us chose. What should we read next?


Are these books of interest to you? Would you like to be able to participate in the book club here on the blog rather than signing up with the group on Goodreads?

    I think The Connected Child would be a great choice to study. I don’t have a goodreads account but I will look into getting one.
