Barefoot in High Heels

It’s National Children’s Book Week 2009!

Posted on: May 11, 2009

I have a friend who posted on Facebook about some upcoming crazy celebration days for this week.    Let’s see . . .  Twilight Zone Day on May 11, Kite and Limerick Day on Tuesday, and Dance Like a Chicken Day on Thursday.  Let the fun begin!  But another celebration worth mentioning is going on all week . . . it’s National Children’s Book Week!

You loyal readers know that, as a Barefoot Books stallholder, this is right up my alley!   So I thought I’d post a few fun ways to get your kids involved in reading.

Of course, Barefoot has such high-quality, fantastic books for kids.  But check out the activity page site here for downloadable, printable .pdf pages for your kids to color.  The sheets correspond to some of our popular favorites, like Portside Pirates, Whole World, or Thesaurus Rex.   The activity sheet for We All Went on Safari even helps to teach kids to count to ten in Swahili!  They’re a lot of fun, and a great way to tie in some other concepts like colors, synonyms, counting, and even tracing and drawing while reading one of the books, too!

For more activity sheet fun, and some great stories for kids, click on over to my Barefoot Books website!   And check out your local library or bookstore for some activities surrounding National Children’s Book Week.

Happy Reading!
