8 Art and Literacy Projects for PreschoolersIt’s Back to School time, which means a lot of cheers from parents everywhere and a lot of excitement from teachers and students.  I’ve been part of an amazing series called Preschool Book Club for the past few months.  Being part of this fantastic group of women who truly care about literacy has given me the opportunity to create some really fun activities for some of the most wonderful books for preschoolers.  I’ve compiled them here so you can pick your favorite and do some fun Back to School art and play with your children.  Here are all the links plus a link to buying the books on Amazon if you don’t already have them.  These are all fantastic books to get you and your child in the school groove.  Happy reading!
