April Virtual Book Club for Kids

Last month we hosted our first ever Virtual Book Club for Kids! This month we are teaming up with Mommy & Me Book Club to share a new book with you for April.

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 April 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 April 26th 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 Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss.

I highly recommend purchasing this book to add to your Spring collection if you don't have it already. I loved reading this book with students when I was a classroom teacher. 

If you don't want to buy it, 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 April 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 April 26th 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!

  7. THANK YOU! This book is one in the list of 'Before Five in a Row' books read. Only problem is, I haven't been able to borrow them from any library! I never thought of looking on YouTube... but in doing so, I found this link which is absolutely delightful, and I just had to share it. Count us in on the book club (at least for this month) I think it's a marvelous idea.
