Today I am so excited to kick off our third year of Virtual Book Club for Kids and announce the authors and books we will be featuring this school year!!
Virtual Book Club for Kids is a free online book group for families that features a new author each month! I co-host Virtual Book Club for Kids each month with Cerys from Rainy Day Mum and Kim from The Educators' Spin On It along with a wonderful group of blogging friends that I will introduce to you next week!
In addition to featuring a new author each month, this year we will be sharing THREE of our favorite books by that author along with several book inspired activities for kids! We would love to invite you to join us as we create and connect with books this year!
This year Virtual Book Club for Kids will be held on the second Thursday of every month.
Our activities will be geared towards kids ages 2-6 but many can be adapted for younger or older children. Scroll down to see how you can participate.
Our featured authors for 2014-2015 are...
Are you interested in participating in Virtual Book Club for Kids this year? If so, here's what to do...
1. Add the dates to your calendar and start reserving or finding your books!
2. Pick at least one book each month to read with your child.
3. Do a book inspired craft or activity after you read the book.
4. Come stop by on the second Thursday of the month and tell us what you did here in the comments or over on our Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook page!
