We’re excited to announce our selection of authors and books that have been chosen for the 2014-2015. We took much time and consideration in selecting and we invite you to follow along and join in the fun with your child at home or your class at school.
This year my cohosts +Kristina Buskirk from Toddler Approved and +Cerys Parker from Rainy Day Mum have hand selected 3 books to featured from our selected list of favorite authors to give you a more comprehension list of activities to complete with the books read. We hope it will inspire you to spend a month with an author involved in hands on literacy inspired activities. These featured activities will be ideal for a family looking to enrich literacy at home, homeschoolers, preschool and kindergarten classroom teachers and even to make your own love books packages to send to someone special.
Are you ready to see which popular authors made the list?
The Virtual Book Club for Kids will be hosted on the 2nd Thursday of each Month. Here’s the calendar dates to put into your personal calendar. We’re sharing all the authors with you now so you can start reserving at the library or building up your own personal home library with some of our favorite books. I’m attaching our Amazon Affiliate link to each image if you choose to purchase a book on our list, The Educators’ Spin On It will get a small portion from Amazon at no additional cost to you to help us provide this free curriculum to parents and teacher. Thanks for your support!
