Hi there, LBX’plorers, for today’s virtual kids club, we’ll be celebrating Father’s Day with a story and a craft that will “rock” your socks off! We’ll be reading Dad By My Side, a beautiful picture book written and illustrated by Soosh. 

This touching story, which follows a father-daughter duo, reminds kids and parents alike that familial bonds can’t be broken. Whether he’s teaching you how to play chess or warding off monsters from under your bed, dads are always there when you need them. If you’d like to read along at home, purchase a copy of the book here.

After the reading, stick around to make this week’s featured craft- decorative rocks to tell Dad that he rocks! Check out the materials you’ll need below.

Materials Needed:
– Rocks
– Craft paints (any color)
– Paintbrush
– Paper plates
– Sharpie marker

Until we can meet in-person again, the LBX’plorers Kids Club events will be held online.
