  1. Thank you for this wonderful resource!
    I host a weekly cooperative Mommy and Me Book Club for my daughter and 5 friends and their moms. Each week we choose a book to share and do crafts, finger plays, snacks, and activities inspired by the book. I would love to share some of our activities with your readers. I think a lot of our plans might be useful for teachers and librarians. http://www.preschoolbookclub.blogspot.com
