    This is a really great book discussion. The project was a wonderful way to solidify the content of the subject. Thank you for sharing this. It has been a while since I read this book too. I will have to reread it myself. Have a blessed day Heidi!

    This is great! We are reading The Giver this month with our book club and I was looking for questions and activity ideas!

    Awesome Susan! Did you know it is the first book in a 4 book series? I have finished 3 of the 4 and am told that the 4th one really brings everything together!

    Heidi, what are the names of the other books in the series? I read The Giver and The Gathering Blue. I’d love to re-read these in addition to the others.

    I loved reading “The Giver”. I didn’t know they made a movie out of it! I’ll have to watch it with my kids.

    This is an interesting resource and I’d love to read it over and over. I’m sure my kids are going to love it too.
