Virtual Book Club author for July is Giles Andreae

Happy July! I hope you are enjoying your summer. I'm enjoying spending a lot of time with my boys, going on adventures, relaxing in our new tree house, and reading tons of great books! Not only are the boys busy reading, I've got quite the summer reading stack as well. We've been so busy enjoying summer, there hasn't been as much time for blogging. However, we're definitely keeping up with the Virtual Book Club for kids this summer. I'll also be sharing some of our favorite summer reads each Monday in July here at Ready-Set-Read.com.


Virtual Book Club for Kids

In case you are new to this, the virtual book club for kids is a group of over 20 bloggers who join together each month to share a favorite children's author. We announce the author at the beginning of each month. On the second Monday of the month, we host a linky party to share activities to accompany books by that author.

July author for the Virtual Book Club for Kids is Giles Andreae

In July we are featuring the works of Giles Andreae. His book, Rumble in the Jungle, was one of my son's first loved picture books. When Logan was about two years old, he would toddle to the book shelf and return this book to me every single time! I still have the beginning page memorized. Andreae has many wonderful picture books for children. Many of his books feature wonderful poems and silly rhymes.


Link up your Activities to the Virtual Book Club for Kids on July 14

Between now and July 14th, hit a bookstore or library and pick a favorite Giles Andreae book. Share it with your children or your class. Plan to come back here on July 14th to add it to the linky party or share in the comments.
I'll share our book choice and activities on that day as well. As I mentioned, I've been reading a lot this month too. I'm using strategies I'm learning in Fountas and Pinnell's "When Readers Struggle". My four year old is ready to begin phonemic awareness instruction. Giles Andreae's fun rhyming texts are a great place to start. Come back on the 14th of July and I'll share our strategies with all of you.
