Literature is the Next Big Family Game Night Idea

We love good quality Literature. We have been reading to the kids since they were babies. You never know what will inspire them to be big readers. Not only do we read to the kids, but not Bring Your Own Book is a great way to add some literature to game night.

Bring Your Own Book


Before you begin playing, you need to choose a book. You can choose a book you have read in the past, but Bring your Own Book is funnier with a good quality piece of literature you have never read.

One player will turn over a card. She can choose between the red prompts or the blue prompts. Read the prompt out loud turn over the timer. Everyone has a short time to scan the book and find a quote before the timer runs out.

I have to say there are so many reasons we loved playing Bring Your Own Book. The first is kids are exposed to good quality literature. While children may pick a book they are familiar with, I have to say it is much more fun with new books.

Variations in Game Play

Call it Out: Instead of using the timer, have everyone take turns calling out different responses to the writing prompt.

Round Literature: After the player reads the writing prompt, the next player will start off with a sentence from his book. Players will continue adding sentences. You will be surprised at how long this can go on. Your game can even turn into a short story. A new type of literature.

Call it Out: This is our favorite way of playing Bring Your Own Book and that is by calling it out. After the prompt is read, we all flip through the books and keep calling out responses. This is really funny. It can get a little crazy with all the shouting and laughing, but it is tons of fun.

My Overall Opinion

Bring Your Own Book is just amazing. Not only does it gets kids involved with books, but kids will learn to love literature. Kids can choose to share a book that they love, or be introduced to new literature.

I received this game in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and were in no way influenced by outside sources.
