January Virtual Book Club for Kids

david mcphail, picture books, book activities, book clubs

January Virtual Book Club for Kids is coming January 21st! This month a group of bloggers are joining together to enjoy the books of  David McPhail.  McPhail is a very prolific writer for the preschool-early reader crowd. If your kids are interested in anything pig to pirates to teddy bears and fat raccoons, McPhail will be a fun author for you to explore.
I shared one of his books last spring, The Puddle. I haven't picked our Virtual Book Club pick yet, so if you have a favorite book by David McPhail-- share it in the comments. We might pick it!

  January would be a great time to join the VBC for Kids. Anyone is welcome to join in. Here's how:

 1. Comment below and let me know you'll be joining us for the book club this month. 2. Choose a book by David McPhail and read it to your class or family. 3. Create a book activity to go with the book (craft, activity, cooking project, etc) 4. Come back and link it up on January 21st. The linky will be live for 3 weeks so feel free to add more than one project or link up later.

Here is the button you can grab if you are participating:

  1. What an awesome idea! I'd love for you to share this at my Winter Bucket List link-up (open all of January).

    My boys are just two, but I'll have to check out this author and see if I can find a book that inspires a twin-two-year-old-friendly activity.

    Thanks!
