book activities for kids
 
So, Family Literacy Day was a bit of a bust in our house yesterday. Things sorta fell apart when I got the flu. I spent most of the day semi-conscious on the couch…with half an eye on my girls. Relief finally came when my husband came home to help out. Thank goodness I could slip into bed. I had promised a round up of amazing book activities for kids and here it is. This is an incredible selection of blogs with some seriously fun ways to get your kids reading and exploring books. Happy Family Literacy Day!!
