Now that the first month of our Reading is Magic Book Club is a wrap, let’s discuss what we thought of The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman!
This month we’re reading The Golden Compass, the first novel in Philip Pullman’s YA fantasy series His Dark Materials. But there was a time when the book sparked some controversy for promoting atheism.
Let’s explore symbolism in Philip Pullman’s novel The Golden Compass, using the alethiometer as an example! The golden compass is a symbol-reader, making it a perfect tool for teaching about symbolism in literature.
I’m so excited to announce that our first book of the month will be The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. Time to start reading! Join us on Goodreads or share your thoughts in the comments as we read and post throughout January. 🙂
