So let's continue with some more giving. Have you heard about Alphabet Glue, yet? Annie, of Bird and Little Bird, has just launched a new quarterly e-magazine that is so perfectly up my alley... and I'm guessing many of yours. Activities for kids who love books (and their grown-ups)? Oh yes, please! We love to read around here... books on shelves, in stacks, overflowing baskets, left on the stairs, piles on the counter... We all read LOTS! Annie is a mother, special education and literacy teacher, and a crafter. She has excellent taste in children's literature(and I'm quite picky) and always has fun book ideas... from what to read next to different ways to make your own books (you know I love that).
a reading list for spring
do-it-yourself library catalog cards
mix and match story cards
a printable reading record
a library scavenger hunt
tiny box accordion book tutorial
felt bracelet book tutorial
paper story character houses
wildflower seed pods
I'm not surprised that her latest project, Alphabet Glue, is wonderful and just right for little book lovers... and even those littles you'd like to entice to become a book lover. Great stuff!
I know for sure because Annie was good enough to send me a preview copy. Thank you! I've tucked it up my sleeve to pull out during spring break in a couple of weeks... although I might not be able to wait to share the mix and match story cards. Annie also would love to give a copy away to four of you! So please leave a comment in this post before Wednesday at 9pm EST and I'll randomly select four winners for Thursday morning. You can leave any comment at all, but I'd love to hear what some of your favorite childhood books were. One of mine was and still is The Little House.
