This year we are kicking off our 4th annual year-long Virtual Book Club for Kids and we are hoping you will join us!
This year for Virtual Book Club for Kids we will be featuring one book by a different author each month... all year long!
We are excited to have 12 wonderful bloggers participating as club co-hosts and they will be sharing book-inspired activities on their blogs each month! The book-inspired activities that are shared will be wonderful for toddlers and preschoolers and many can be adapted for older kids as well!
The books we are featuring in 2015-2016 are children's books that we love and think that all families should add to their home libraries!

How to participate in Virtual Book Club for Kids:
1. Start by locating the book for the month and read it with your child sometime during that month! Leave a comment on this post committing to join in all year long!
Most of the books we are featuring can be found at your local library. I have provided Amazon Affiliate links for your ease as well if you want to purchase the books and add them to your home library.
2. Try out one or more of the featured activities shared by our Virtual Book Club for Kids co-hosts with your child. Activities will be posted on the 1st of each month so you can access them all month long.
We will be sharing all of the featured activities over on our Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook Page so that they are easy for you to find. If you haven't "Liked" our Facebook page yet you might want to go follow along so you don't miss the activities. I will also be linking to each activity here on the 1st of each month.
3. Post a photo or tell us about a featured book-inspired activity you did with your child using the featured book on our Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook Page or in the comments here on the blog.
4. (Optional) Create your own book-inspired activity using the featured book and either share it on your blog and share a link with us, or if you don't have a blog, just share a photo with us on our Facebook page.
5. (Optional) Create your own Mommy and Me Book Club featuring the Virtual Book Club Books.
Get together with friends and read the book each month and then do book-inspired activities together. Find more details about creating a Mommy and Me Book Club HERE.
