Picture Books for Kids

Children are engaged as readers when they can experience high quality, interesting texts. It can be tricky to find quality picture books for kids. I'd love to spend hours pouring over picture books at our local library selecting a "just right" book for bedtime each night. However, my time, like yours is limited. The picture book of the day project and The Virtual Book Club for Kids are two resources to help in finding great picture books for kids.

Picture Book of the Day

There are several book bloggers that I rely on to consistently give great book recommendations. In the past few years, some of these bloggers have joined together to create a picture book of the day project. Each day, a different blogger picks a high quality children's book to share. All of the participating bloggers then share the book on their facebook pages.

Picture book of the Day took a summer break but we are returning on September 1st. You can find the picture book recommendations on my ready-set-read facebook page. I'd love if you'd follow my facebook page while you are there. Picture Book of the Day is organized by a fantastic blogger, Jodie, at Growing Book by Book. Check out her blog post to "meet" the bloggers behind picture book of the day. You might find some great new blogs to follow.

Virtual Book Club for Kids

You can also find picture book recommendations in the Virtual Book Club for Kids. I'll be participating in the Virtual Book Club for kids again this year. Check back in September for more details on how you and your kids can participate in the virtual book club.

Also, I'd love if you'd follow along on social media. You can find picture books for kids not just on my facebook page but also on Google +. I also have a google + group called "Reading with Children." You can find helpful literacy advice by following me on twitter. I love twitter chats and love to share knowledge that I am learning about literacy development. Come learn with me! You might also like to follow a few of my pinterest boards that are focused on picture books for kids.
