Virtual Book Club for Kids

Virtual book club for kids, book club, book activities, ready set read
Hi friends! I hope you were able to participate in the Summer Virtual Book Club with us. We teamed up with a group of bloggers to study one author each month. Bloggers and participants shared book projects and we were able to create a great resource of activities for our three selected authors.
June- Mo Willems
July- Audrey and Don Wood
August- Kevin Henkes
We enjoyed the book club so much, the group of bloggers who began the Summer Virtual Book Club have decided to continue for the next year! Each month we will feature one author. I'll remind you at the beginning of the month. Near the middle of the month, there will be a linky party to share the ideas for studying the selected author's books.

September Book Club Author is Lois Ehlert

The author for the month of September is Lois Ehlert. I love her books and her beautifully bold illustrations. Some of my favorite books by Lois Ehlert are:

Planting a Rainbow, Growing Vegetable Soup, and Leaf Man.

I'll be featuring "Nuts to You!" for the month of September on Ready. Set. Read!
