Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmens is one of our all-time favourite books, so we were so excited when our Virtual Book Club for Kids chose it as the November selection.
Just in case you didn’t catch our original Madeline Sensory Bin post, I thought I’d gather all of the links from the other participating bloggers in one easy place for you, so here are 15 Madeline Activities & Snacks to try after reading the book!
