Welcome to the second week of the Little Sprout Book Club! I am SO excited to be rolling this out and am so glad you are here to take part in Book Club! Each month we will have a theme to keep us focused. The remainder of September is “Back to School” and the week of September 29th we move to our Farm theme as we transition into October. These books have already been announced in our newsletter. In order to learn about upcoming books ahead of time so you can be ready to go as soon as we send out our Book Club newsletter each week, be sure to sign up here: Book Club Sign Up.
