The Virtual Book Club for Kids is a online group of bloggers, parents, caregivers, and educators that explores fabulous authors and new books each month all year long!
Each month we spotlight one author, read books by that author, and share book-related crafts and activities inspired by the author's books that we've choosen to read. The crafts and activities we share are geared towards kids ages 1-6, though many can be adapted for older kids.
Our goal is to help kids gain a love of reading at an early age while making connections with books in fun and meaningful ways.
For the 2013-2014 year (September 2013 - August 2014) we will be featuring the authors listed below...
