Are you needing a special back-to-school decoration?

Love these free printable posters by +HarperCollins Children's .

Thanks +Susan Stephenson for sharing this in Great Books for Kids, otherwise I don't think I would have seen it.
 
Would you like some lovely children's book posters to decorate your book nook or classroom? Harper Collins has two free ones to download!

Library Scavenger Hunt

+Erica MomandKiddo and I have put together a full set of summer library challenges over the past month. I think that many of you would be interested in them. Through mini-challenges we help a child & parent explore the fiction, non-fiction, and non-book resources of the library.

We just finished it up with a fun library scavenger hunt that includes a free printable: http://www.notwiddletwaddle.com/2013/08/library-scavenger-hunt.html

We have already heard feedback from some librarians that they enjoyed the series. I would love to hear what some of you think?

Alphabet Bingo

We are learning letters in preparation for kindergarten. My preschooler isn't too thrilled about it, so we turned letter review into a game: Alphabet Bingo. I made a free printable, so that others can enjoy it too.

If any of you have any tips or easy activities for learning letters, I would love to see them. I'm looking for anything that I can find!

We are working on the alphabet to get reading for kindergarten in my home. What are your favorite ABC books (I know that +Nichole Halliday just suggested one)? I would especially love to find some books that emphasize the lowercase letters of the alphabet!

Free EBook: Is It True? Dogs by Cindy Bracken

Check out this free Kindle book: Is It True? Dogs by Cindy Bracken. I've always liked Bracken's books because they are well-written and have high-quality photos and formatting.

Another plus for parents: Bracken used to be a kindergarten teacher so her books typically make great first readers.

Check it out on Amazon (affiliate link): http://amzn.to/1501GKQ

Thank you so much +PragmaticMom , +Allison McDonald +Jennifer Fischer , +Erica MomandKiddo +Jennifer Lim . I'm going to have to check out these suggestions. We have recently found a number of great books about bird watching and we also checked out Drake's Comprehensive Compendium of Dragons which was a huge hit with my preschooler.

Are your kids fascinated by the moon?

Today's picture book of the day tells the story of a young boy who wonders if the moon will always follow him. I love the cover and the wonder that it depicts in the boy's face. I am excited to see +Erica MomandKiddo 's recent theme of including diverse characters in her book suggestions.

Max and The Tag-Along Moon - I recently discovered Floyd Cooper's new book and it is wonderful. It really reminds me of the car rides I took as a kid, when I, too, watched the moon following us home. There was a recent discussion about picture books with diverse characters and this is certainly a book I would add to your library pile.
