Join Us! Virtual Book Club For Kids 2012-2013

Well it is September..which means it is approaching my most favorite time of year…FALL! I am feeling quite refreshed after a little blogging/computer break (more on that later) but I wanted to stop in for a quick announcement that I am SO excited about! I am joining several other bloggers and am taking part in the Virtual Book Club for Kids!

Here is how it works: Toddler Approved, Mommy and Me Bookclub, and The Educators Spin on It are all co-hosting this amazing year long book club. They have worked together to pick 12 fantastic authors to spot light over the next 12 months. Each month all participating bloggers with pick a book written by the author of the month and will post activities to go along with the book. These may be crafts, games, language, math, fine motor, gross motor, cooking, etc. Then on the third Monday of every month, we will all be linking up our activities to share with everyone!

And guess what else? We’d love to have you join us! Head over to Toddler Approved right now to read more about how YOU can join us this year in the Virtual Book Club for Kids…and be sure to “like” the Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook page to keep up to date on all the learning Fun!
