Announcing: Virtual Book Club For Kids

September 16, 2012 in All Posts, Play, Preschool, Toddler Activities

I’m really pleased to be working with some of my favorite kid bloggers who champion children’s literacy skills and have come together to form the yearlong Virtual Book Club for Kids, spearheaded by none other than the fabulous Kristina of one of my favorite kid blogs, Toddler Approved, Danielle at Mommy & Me Book Club and Kim at The Educators’ Spin On It.
