FInd Activities for Book Week

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.

Let me help you find books for your kids and keep them (almost) effortlessly entertained. Receive a printable bookplate when you sign up for our Weekly-ish Newsletter.

    The Children’s Bookshelf is such a great idea! Thank you for hosting it, Erica! I’d love to put a button for it on Ink & Pen, however, the buttons above didn’t work for me (I am not very techsavy). Can you help me figure it out? Thank you in advance!

      There was something wrong in the coding in this post. I think I’ve fixed it now. Try coping the text you see in the little box under the button. Then paste it in your post — but you must be composing your post in HTML mode. You won’t see the button when you are in HTML mode, but should see it when you switch back to compose mode.

          Spoke too soon–actually, I’m not sure it works. I figured out a way to make it work for it work for me, but just in case it’s the link and not my incompetence, I wanted to let you know!

            If you can’t get it to work, feel free to download the image and just use that. Or you could use a text link back to the blog. Using the button isn’t a requirement for linking up, but I appreciate the thought. When I get time, I’ll investigate to see if the problem is on my end.
