Virtual Book Club for Kids Special Series: Bill Martin, Jr.

Baby Toddler Book Club has decided to post a special series on our blog as we participate in the Virtual Book Club for Kids throughout the year! Essentially, Virtual Book Club for Kids (hosted by Toddler Approved, Educator’s Spin on It, and Rainy Day Mum) selects an author each month. Kid bloggers from around the blogging world then link up activities related to books by the featured author. This concept was so perfectly aligned with what we do already, we couldn’t pass up the chance to share what we have already done or, in some cases, try something new with our book club! Our participation in Virtual Book Club for Kids will NOT replace our regularly planned book club meetings (you can see what we’re planning on our Book Lists page), but will simply be in addition. 

Bill Martin, Jr. was selected as the Virtual Book Club September author. Last February, our book club met to read one of his very well known books: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. This meeting continues to be one of our most popular posts and is pinned regularly on Pinterest, so we decided to repost those activities here! Below is a brief recap of what we did, but please see the full post, with MANY more pictures and details, here.
