Thanks to Kristina from Toddler Approved for creating and sharing this wonderful graphic!
I love the Book Club because it helps me to make a commitment to having the kids and I do an in-depth study of one author each month. It’s been our monthly routine throughout the summer to go to the library and check out ALL the books we can find by the featured author of the month (as well as round up the ones we already have at home!). It’s a fun way to find new favorites and inspiration … and now it will continue throughout the year!
Here’s the author list and dates …
September 17th – Lois Ehlert ::: October 15th – Amy Krouse Rosenthal ::: November 19th – Tomie de Paola ::: December 17th – Jan Brett ::: January 21st David McPhail ::: February 18th – Dr.Seuss ::: March 18th – Julia Donaldson ::: April 15th – David Shannon ::: May 20th – Leo Lionni ::: June 17th – Gail Gibbons ::: July 15th – Jez Alborough ::: August 19th – Donald Crews
Here’s list of the blogs that have already signed up to participate …
We’d love you to join in the fun … Here’s a reminder of what you need to do each month…
- Pick your favorite book by that month’s author (or a new one you want to check out) and read it with your child or class.
- Create an activity, project, craft, cooking project, etc. related to the book and do it.
- Come back and share it with us as part of a big blog hop on the third Monday of the month. The linky will be live for 3 weeks, so if you aren’t ready to post on the exact date… just join in when you can! If you don’t blog, you can share what you did on our Facebook wall, email us, or just comment on the post.
I hope that you’ll come back next Monday to see what Lois Ehlert book we choose! What’s YOUR favorite book by Lois Ehlert?
