Are you ready for a whole new year of Virtual Book Club for Kids? We sure are! We are starting with Where the Wild Things Are by creating our very own shape monsters!

Our kids are fascinated by the book Where the Wild Things Are! From the setting to the plot to the characters they are captivated from the first to the last word. It's no wonder that it's won the Caldecott Medal!
I invited our kids to make their own Wild Things! I set out construction paper shapes cut in the colors used in the book. Also available was a glue stick and crayons.
First the kids and I discussed the shapes. "What colors do you see? What shape is this? Which one is larger? What might you use to create your Wild Thing?"
The kids carefully selected and arranged their pieces. When they had the placement just the way they wanted it they glued them in place. Finally, they added details with crayon if they chose to do so.
Will you join us this year for the Virtual Book Club for Kids?
Grab these books ahead of time at your local library so you are all set and ready to go with us each month!
I'll be here on the first of each month sharing an activity to try with each book along with lots of other writers from my favorite websites for kids!
