Denise Fleming is April’s author of the month for the Virtual Book Club for Kids, and the kids and I really enjoyed reading several of her books together! Here are three of our favorite Denise Fleming books, with activities to go with them! This post may contain affiliate links which won’t change your price but will share some commission.
Lunch is the very cutely illustrated story of a very hungry mouse. This is a great book to read along with a cooking project! Lily particularly enjoys making pasta, but you can find several kid-friendly recipes on this blog.
Where Once There Was a Wood is a more serious book, with a conservation theme. You can combine this book with a lesson on recycling, or upcycling. We do a lot of cardboard crafting our our house, from fancy light-up space shuttles to this simple cardboard play house and even simpler teeter totter. This is also a great book to read along with this simple gardening activity for little ones, or to go along with a bird feeder craft.
