Are you a member of the Virtual Book Club for Kids?
Over 6,000 awesome parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers participate in a weekly book club. You can join too!
Kristina (Toddler Approved), Cerys (Rainy Day Mum) and Kim (The Educators’ Spin On It) launched this amazing group. Together with a collection of creative bloggers (included me!!) they share a fabulous children’s book and fun learning activities for 2-5 year olds to go with it each Monday during the school year.
It’s easy, fun, FREE, and no-pressure. Participate when you can and however much you want.
My twins and I started as participants when they were tiny. I loved having weekly inspiration and the camaraderie. Last year I joined as one of the co-hosts and have grown even more appreciative of this awesome group. Aside from our monthly A Read A Day reading challenge this is our favorite communities for children’s book fans.
I hope you’ll join us!
