We have a really exciting announcement to make today!

In addition to our usual monthly Virtual Book Club for Kids featuring picture books, we are starting a Virtual Chapter Book Club for Kids!

This new Virtual Chapter Book Club project will feature a new theme and chapter book series each month! We are hoping that this will be a fun new way to get more kids of all ages reading, creating, and connecting with books all year long!

We’d love to invite you to join in! Keep reading to see how.

Here are our 2013-2014 themes …

In addition to focusing on a theme each month, we will be sharing a new series of chapter books each month related to the theme. Here are a few of the series that will be spotlighted. Some bloggers will spotlight different series as well.

Virtual Book Club for Kids Series Titles

October – The Boxcar Children
November – Whatever After Series
Decemeber –Holiday Chapter Books
January – Magic School Bus Chapter Books
February – American Girl Series
March – Babymouse
April – Geranimo Stilton
May – DK Eyewitness Chapter Books
June – Matt Christopher Sports Biographies
July – Cam Jansen
August – Magic Tree House

Here’s how our Virtual Chapter Book Club is going to work…

1. At the beginning of each month we will spotlight the new theme and a chapter book series that relates to the theme. We’ll share some details about the books we are choosing and we’ll pick a book or two or three in the series to read during the month.

2. During the month we will read the book(s) and do some book related crafts or activities.

3. On the first Tuesday of the month indicated above we will share about the books we read and post the book related crafts and/or activities that we did (for example on Oct 1st we will share our first post about mysteries).

4. Lastly we’ll add a link up to the bottom of our blog post so that if you are a blogger you can join in and share what book-related crafts and activities you did with your kids!

If you aren’t a blogger you can still participate by sharing your ideas on our Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook wall or in the comments of this post.

    I’m looking at the themes and thinking about how fun they would be, but I’m not sure about whether we can do different books instead of the series listed, and if we do different books, should they be parts of series, or could we do some stand-alone book instead? I’d love to join in for the next few months.

    Thanks for starting a virtual chapter book club. My daughter is what I would describe as a reluctant reader. I have been looking for a way to encourage her to read more and to finish what she starts. This looks like a fun way to introduce new authors and book series while having fun. The selections for each month are great. We plan to join in and cannot wait to view others ideas as well!

    Hi ~ would like to know if you will have a Summer Camp 2014 for Chapter books for kids. I have a 10 year old who enjoys reading and would like to keep her busy this summer.

    Thank you 🙂
