Last week on The Children’s Bookshelf, I was delighted to note several newcomers to our party. Thank you all for visiting. I know spring is in the air, and rightly so many of you are spending your valuable time outdoors. I hope you are getting lots of reading time in, too.
I’d like to highlight a post from the The Book Chook which was simply chock full of tremendously useful information. Susan shared a ton of activities to do with your kids during Children’s Book Week. Susan is an Australian educator and book-lover; Australia’s Children’s Book Week is in August, but here in the US, it is right around the corner (May 13-19), so the timing of her post is perfect.
Her many suggestions for literacy activities to do in the library or at home are also perfect for those of you participating in Screen-Free Week, which starts tomorrow (gasp!).
Just a note: This blog will not be radio silent during Screen-Free Week, but I will be dialing back my social media and going completely offline when the kids are home. I will likely not get around to commenting on everyone’s linked up posts, but please do link up if you are online.
