Weekly Virtual Book Club for Kids

Each Monday we’ll be sharing activities to go along with a favorite children’s book. The ideas are intended for ages 2-5, but you can modify many of them for varying ages. To join us, read the book of the week. Then, try out some of the activities or create your own. You can also join our Weekly Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook group. This closed Facebook group is a great place to get activity ideas, book recommendations, and share what you’re doing with us. Only members of the group can see what is shared, so join us!
