Amy Krouse Rosenthal {Virtual Book Club for Kids}

Have you discovered the author Amy Krouse Rosenthal?  My first encounter with reading her books was during our Love Books Exchange this past summer where we received The Spoon from Mommy and Me Book Club along with tons of adorable activities.  Here's more info about how much fun we had with The Spoon. After reading her book we felt the need to see if she had others at the library and we fell in love with her books.  My daughter and I decided to do a little more exploring to get to know Amy a little bit better and I have to say we were really surprised to see how many things she creates and what an inspirational person she is. 

We encourage you to stop by her website Who is  By far it is one of the best author website we've discovered as we've done many author studies.  Her website is simple, effective and adorable.  With a simple click you discover that she is an author of children's and grown-up books, Amy also makes short films, which can be viewed on her site. We love the homepage feature of this site, where visitors can select the mood and ambiance.

Now that you've discovered her website, here are all the books that she has written so far for children.  I love the diversity of topics that she has written about and how she has teamed up with a variety of illustrators so each one has it's own special appeal to it, yet they all have a special touch that you know comes from the imagination of Amy.  We invite you to check out a few of her titles below and see which one is your favorite.

In today's day and age it's so much fun to be able to step into the digital world of an author to get to know them a little bit better and to find out the collection of work they have created.  Many of our students have access to smart boards and computers at school so I put together a little collection from Amy Krouse Rosenthal You Tube Channel for you to watch with your child.  Once you take a peek you'll be inspired to read her books and find activities to do with them!
