So, what could be sweeter than leaving a little love note on your favorite book?! This is a VERY simple, low-prep activity that your kids will LOVE.
Sidenote: if you don’t own the above pictured book, The Book with No Pictures, stop what you’re doing, head to Amazon and GO BUY IT. It is HILARIOUS and I promise that you and your kiddos will ADORE it. I get a laughs out of it every single time I read it!
Here’s how to assemble the love note…
Easy peasy! After it’s complete, display the book in your reading center, on desks during Celebration of Learning, open house exhibits, or when kiddos are shopping for books to add to their book bins.
While it would work great ANY time of year, this resource would be a huge asset to use during the week of Read Across America, to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Celebration of Learning nights, open house, and more! It’s always a good time to celebrate reading and books!
