Come and have fun with picture books for toddlers, preschool, kindergarten and adaptable for first grade.  Visit a subject to find recommended children's literature tied to activities that include easy instructions and a list of materials needed.  You will find lesson plans, crafts, printable activities, and related resources. Age recommendations are indicated next to the title, but many books may be used earlier or later based on your own judgment.

This is a labor of love in progress.  I would love to hear your kind comments and ideas to make this a better site.  More book activities will be added regularly!
