Dive into a Book!
Launched April 6, there will be daily videos on facebook featuring children's book authors and others in "read-Aloud" segments and/or features on new and best loved children's books.
Facilitated by educators from all over the United States, the club meets Thursday afternoons on Zoom to talk about a common book, meet and interact with the book's author and talk with other kids about the book. Get more information.
