Last month was a huge month for the Virtual Book Club for Kids as we featured Dr. Seuss. March is National Reading Month, and we have something special planned. Lots of bloggers and authors are joining together for a series of live video chats to share creative reading ideas. We celebrated Read Across America Day on March 1st. We’ll be celebrating World Read Aloud Day, World Book Day, and more. I hope you’ll join us! With the focus on reading world wide, it’s fitting that Julia Donaldson is our author of the month for March.

Julia Donaldson (author of The Gruffalo and other fabulous books) is the March's featured author for the Virtual Book Club for Kids

Want to join us?

  1. Choose a book by Julia Donaldson, the featured author for the month.  {Have your kids help you pick a new one or choose your favorite to read.}
  2. Be inspired by the book and complete a related activity {project, craft, recipe, etc.}.
  3. On the third Monday of the month {March 18th} come here to share your book and activities at our Blog Hop.

Julia Donaldson

Julia Donaldson is a popular British writer probably best known for The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, and Stick Man. She has authored a large number of books, so you should find several that interest you and your child. We learned from the book jacket on Tabby McTat, the Musical Cat that Julia Donaldson used to be a busker. She and her husband played music in public places (street corners, etc.) for money. She then went on to become a successful songwriter, storyteller, and children’s book author.

Here are some of the books that we have read and loved:
