January & February Virtual Book Club for Kids Book List
Here’s a more detailed look at the books we’ve chosen to feature in January and February. They are my favorite that I hope everyone finds to keep on their bookshelf at home or checks out from the library to read again and again. I’ve linked them up to Amazon.com for easy online shopping to build your children’s bookshelf! Many of the authors are popular authors too, we wanted to make sure to help you get exposed to series of books we love too!
In the story, Bear Snores On, the Bear’s cave fills with animal friends as he sleeps. One by one, a whole host of different animals and birds find their way out of the winter’s cold and into Bear’s cave to warm up. But even after the tea has been brewed and the corn has been popped, Bear just snores on! The sweetest moment is when when he finally wakes up and finds his cave full of uninvited guests. It’s a fun story when you’re teaching your child about hibernation.
The popular book The Snowy Day captures the magic of the first snowfall as an adorable little boy shares his adventures in the city on a very snowy day. The story has become a favorite of millions, as it reveals a child’s wonder at a new world, and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever.
If you give a pig a pancake, she’ll want some syrup to go with it. You’ll give her some of your favorite maple syrup, and she’ll probably get all sticky, so she’ll want to take a bath. She’ll ask you for some bubbles. When you give her the bubbles.. Fans of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie ” will love this perfect addition to the book series by Laura Numeroff as a little girl shares her struggles of own little pig.
BOOK: Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
This funny picture book about the strong-willed dog who really doesn’t want a bath stands the test of time. Harry is a white dog with black spots who hates to take a bath. After a day of adventure, Harry gets so dirty that he no longer looks like a white dog with black spots. Now he looks like a black dog with white spots!
One of our most favorite books of all time! When you love someone very, very much, you want to find a way of describing how much you treasure them. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not always an easy thing to measure! A treasured phrase you and your child will share at storytime “I love you to the moon and back”.
Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter is having quite the grumpy day in this funny heartwarming book. Whether he’s cranky on the slide or stubborn in the sandbox, parents and kids can relate to this beloved story. A perfect book to teach children about their emotions!
The classic Beginner Book features a tricky fox in socks and the progressively more difficult tongue-twisting games he plays on his exasperated friend Knox.
BOOK: Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin
This is a funny story all about dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. You’d better be careful though if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa!
These are the 8 books we’ll be featured in our Weekly Virtual Book Club for Kids with Preschool Activities to work with your child on. You can order them now and have them arrive in time for the holidays! They are each linked up to Amazon.com
