Thames Farm Kids Reading Club

Our Reading Club is a brain-child of mine…..I am hoping to encourage kids to read, but also to give books a try that have at least a little to do with farming or have animals as characters or subjects.  I am encouraging Bible verse memorization of verses that deal with farming and animals.  If you would like your child (children) to participate please send your name/ contact info/ name and ages of your children to

The list of books and verses will have additions but I wanted to start a list.  I am encouraging parents to help me with this by reviewing the books and making sure there are not ideas or lessons contrary to what is good for children.

Some of these have a series of books and any of the books in the series you are welcome to add.  Please if you have a suggestion of a book please send me the information.  Below is a random list of books.  Check the age level.    Send a picture of your child with the book so I can post to our Facebook page.  You can always email at  my cell # 803-323-7789

We will host a party on the farm next Spring (March) for the kids that participate.  Games, Animals, Food and Prizes)
