2012-2013 Virtual Book Club

Mommy and Me Book Club is hosting a Virtual Book Club each month this school year with Toddler Approved and The Educators' Spin On It and over 15 other bloggers.  


We have chosen a different author for each month.  We would love for you to choose your favorite book by that author to share with your children or class and create a fun activity that goes along with the book.  Then come back here to share it on the third Monday of each month.   I am so excited to share this list of some of my very favorite authors with you! 

September 17th-Lois Ehlert

October 15th-Amy Krouse Rosenthal

November 19th- Tomie de Paola

December 17th- Jan Brett

January 21st-David McPhail

February 18th-Dr. Seuss

March 18th-Julia Donaldson

April 15th-David Shannon

May 20th-Leo Lionni

June 17th-Gail Gibbons

July 15th- Jez Alborough

August 19th-Donald Crews

Don't worry, I will still be sharing our weekly adventures with you from my real life Mommy and Me Book Club.  However, once a month, I will feature a book by our selected author of the month.  I hope you will share with me all of your book inspired fun!  
If you want to participate and want to stay up to date, join our Virtual Book Club fan page on Facebook! 

Which of these authors on our list are you most excited about?  Are any of these new to you? Please comment below and let me know! 



Tomie dePaola is my favorite on the list. We have a beautiful Nativity book by kids like Strega Nona the best though.

Moms Tot School

I am so excited to only recognize two of these authors. We have already discovered three wonderful authors that we hadn't read before through this book club. Thank you, and I look forward to seeing all the wonderful activities everyone does!


This will be a great addition to our "curriculum" this year as my girls Love books! Now we need to head to the bookstore and find our first club book!


Such and awesome idea! Are you familiar with Barefoot Books I'd love to introduce you to some that you could feature on your blog! You can email me directly at Can't wait to follow along with my boys!


I have always loved Jan Brett for her wonderful illustrations and the authenticity of her drawings. And of course Gail Gibbons has such wonderful non-fiction books that children and teachers love to read together.

Andrea @ No Doubt Learning

I love that you scheduled the whole year - thanks for hosting!

Brigette Joy

This will help me in learning about children's authors. I'm excited.


Is there a place to grab the html for the button? I've got my first post ready to go, but want to make sure to have the button in it. So excited to share!

Thank you for your comments! I love hearing from the readers of my blog. It makes my day! I have recently had a lot of inappropriate spam that has snuck through, so I am turning on the moderation of comments for a short time, to see if it helps. I am so sorry for any inconvience this may cause, but I want to remain a family friendly blog. -Danielle @Mommy and Me Book Club
