May Virtual Book Club for Kids


We are so excited for May's Virtual Book Club for Kids! This month we are teaming up with The Educator's Spin On It to share a new book with you!.

We are inviting all of you to participate in a virtual book club with us again this month!

In order to participate you just have to do three things:

1. Read the book for May with your child (listed below).

2. Create a craft, activity, project, cooking experience, song, etc. (anything creative) that relates to the book and do it with your child.

3. Share it with us on May 30th via your blog, posting pictures on our Facebook page, or just commenting and telling us about what you did.


This month's book is The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle.




We love insects at our house and thought this would be a fun book to inspire us in our creating! I highly recommend purchasing this book to add to your Spring collection if you don't have it already. I think every house needs to be full of Eric Carle books. There are so many amazing ones! What are your favorites?

If you don't want to buy the book (and don't have it already), you can check it out at your local library, or read it online for free here with your child.

So, are you interested in joining our May Virtual Book Club for Kids?


If so, leave a comment below to let us know that you are joining us and then get started reading and planning your fun creative experiences!

On May 30th we will share our ideas with you and also post a linky so that if you're a blogger, you can link up your book club post and share it with us too.

I am so excited to see all of the different things that we can create and learn as we read this book together! I hope you will join us!

Book Spotlight: Do you ever wish your kids liked vegetables a bit more?


Children's author Sahar Bergis has written an adorable book called Lili's Strawberry House that teaches kids about vegetables. We have been using it to get my son excited about eating his veggies! Next week we'll be sharing a few book related activities with you! If you haven't seen the book before, you can check out more information here.

  18. I ordered a second hand version of this book and it took so long to arrive I was worried I might miss the book club. It finally arrived yesterday - phew!

  19. Book finally arrived and we read it and did or project this weekend. Goblin loved the noise at the end of the book. So much so that it was hard to get him to allow me to read the rest of the book rather than just flip to the back every time

  20. It was checked out at 3 of our libraries! Watched the online version that The Educator's Spin On It posted! :)
