Join the Year Long Virtual Book Club for Kids

I love raising readers so today's announcement is one that is very close to my heart and that I have been bursting to share with you. After the wonderful success of the Summer Virtual Book Club for Kids, we decided to keep the reading fun going all year long. Yay! I would officially like to announce the Year Long Virtual Book Club for Kids and invite you to join in with us as we explore 12 amazing authors over the next 12 months.


Our Year Long Virtual Book Club for Kids Author Pics - I have highlighted some of my favorite books from each author to get you going in case any are new to you. I am so excited about this list.

There are quite a few of our favorite authors on this list but there are also some that are new to us and I am excited to delve in and read with the Little Divas throughout the year. What do you think of the author picks? Do you see some of your faves? Did you spot some authors you have never read before?

I am truly excited to share this fabulous reading experience with some awesome fellow bloggers (see list at end of post) and all of you. Will you join us?

It's super easy to join in on the virtual book club fun. Here's how -
1. Pick a book from the spotlighted author.
2. Do a book related craft and/or activity with your child(ren)
3. Share it on your blog & link up to our monthly linky. Don't have a blog - share your fun on the Virtual Book Club Facebook page or on our Facebook page when we post about the month's linky.

Did you know there is even aVirtual Book Club Pinterest page - follow it to help keep all the fabulous book ideas shared in one place.

    1. Jay, I hope you can join in. Feel free to jump in when you can and skip when you can't. One nice thing is that the linky will run for 3 weeks so you can get it in after the launch date too. We want this to be pressure free and all about having fun reading with our kids and/or students.

  4. This looks like so much fun! I stumbled across your blog on pinterest and love it. I am looking forward to trying to read all these all year with my kids. I love finding new children's books. My best friend and I just recently started a linkup party called Turn the Page Tuesday where every Tuesday you share a great children's book. We did it to learn about other great ones out there to read to our kids. You should join us this coming Tuesday!
