Toddler monthly book club

So this month I'm really excited to be starting something new. Once or twice a month we are inviting a group of similarly-aged toddlers to D around to the house for Book Club.

The format is going to loosely be:
- read a book together
- have a themed snack
- do a related craft activity

In toddlers especially, familiarity helps increase both their attention and their engagement with activities so I'm hoping most of the toddlers read the named book a couple of times before each Book Club so they know the story and characters. 

So this is the schedule for our first few sessions:

March 16th - Elmer by David McKee
March 27th - The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss
April 10th - Paddington by Michael Bond
April 13th - How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers

If you want to join in with the same books then come back after each date to see what snacks and crafts we did linked to the stories. Or if you have any other book ideas or run your own Toddler Book Club I'd love to hear about it and maybe we could form a linky :)
