Virtual Book Club for Kids

Fun news! I am joining a bunch of bloggers in an exciting series starting next week.  The Virtual Book Club for Kids is a book club that uses awesome children’s’ books to encourage learning and play…and it’s all virtual!  The best part is that YOU are invited to join in on the fun.  Join us as we read, create, and share creative ideas based on children’s books in this Virtual Book Club!
