Summer Virtual Book Club for Kids

If you missed the announcement on Friday or in our June Toddler Approved newsletter, I just wanted to make sure you heard about this awesome event that we're hosting with 20+ bloggers this Summer. Typically we host a Virtual Book Club each month and feature just one book. This summer we will be studying several different authors and we will be showcasing loads of new books!

Each month we will pick a new author to study as part of our Summer Virtual Book Club!

In June we are studying Mo Willems!  

Some of our favorite books by Mo Willems include...

If you're interested in joining this month's book club, here's what you need to do...

  1. Comment below and let us know that you are joining in!
  2. Pick your favorite book by Mo Willems (or a new one you want to check out) and read it with your child or class.
  3. Create an activity, project, craft, cooking project, etc. related to the book and do it.
  4. Come back and share it with us as part of a big Mo Willems Blog Hop on Monday, June 18th! You can go to this link and you'll find the blog hop and our silly Mo Willems ball activity too.
I can't wait to see what you create!!

If you want to plan ahead, we'll also be studying the following authors this summer...

July- Don & Audrey Wood (July 16th is the link up)
August- Kevin Henkes (August 20th is the link up)
