Saturday Book Club Linky Party is coming!!
If you are a blogger who enjoys sharing and creating book-related activities, games, recipes, and crafts , I would LOVE to have you link up with us the second Saturday of every month for our Saturday Book Club Linky Party. Saturday Book Club Linky Party will take place on the 2nd Saturday of every month and is designed to showcase children book reviews and activities.
My hope is to provide a great resource for parents and readers, and provide a place for amazing bloggers, writers, and publishers to gain more traffic while inspiring others.
The very first SBC will be this coming September 14, 2013 it’s a great to link up your blog post or article about a book or reading related review, crafts, and activity that is related to the monthly theme I have chosen.

So put on your thinking cap, tap into your inner pirate, and create a craft/activity/recipe around your favorite pirate-themed children’s book! More details HERE.
We support Multicultural Kids Books! You may remember a while back when JIAB did a great blog post about Diversity in Kids Books. I had such positive response to this post it prompted me to dig a little deeper. The result was Jump Into a Book teaming up with Mia from Pragmatic Mom to bring our readers a new Multicultural Books for Kids #Pinterest Board!
We have much more exciting things planned around celebrating Multicultural Books for Kids, but we can’t let the cat-out-of-the-bag quite yet. Follow our new Pinterest Board, subscribe to Jump Into A Book to stay tuned for more details.
