Here's your chance to bring a book and teacher created ideas right into your home for your child each month! We're so excited to announce our year long Virtual Book Club for Kids. Each month we will spotlight a new author and each participating blogger will pick a book to focus on that month. We'll share book related crafts and activities the 3rd Monday of each month and we'd love to invite you to join in!
Our co-hosts, Kristina at Toddler Approved and Danielle at Mommy & Me Book Club, have worked together with me and several other kid blogging friends to put together this amazing list of authors for us to focus on this year! Check out the author list below and a few books we have featured by each author. You can click on each book to read to find out more about the authors and books! Start putting a hold on books or ordering to get ready for some fun! Remember it's ANY book from that Author!

- Pick your favorite book by that month's author (or a new one you want to check out) and read it with your child or class.
- Create an activity, project, craft, cooking project, etc. related to the book and do it.

We'll be be posting reminders at the beginning of each month to help you remember which author we are spotlighting!
So, if you're joining in... start reserving some books at your library right now! Or, if you're like me and can't ever remember to return library books, start looking for cheap books online! We can't wait to see which books you choose to explore.
