Free activity sheets from My Home Library and Dr Seuss

posted in: Anne Fine, Dr Suess | 6

My series on free activity sheets from children’s authors and illustrators continues today with two especially lovely sites.

My Home Library, set up by former UK Children’s Laureate Anne Fine, is packed with free downloadable book plates, designed by a wide range of amazing illustrators including Quentin Blake, Posy Simmonds, Anita Jeram, Shirley Hughes and Chris Riddell. Whilst there are lots of full colour book plates available, our favourite are the black and white ones just perfect for colouring in and decorating and then putting inside our favourite books at home.

Book plates are great for your home library, for refreshing book new to you from second hand shops and for personalising books given as gifts – so go and choose one or many you love and enjoy creating your own home library!

There’s also a small selection of bookmarks to print and personalise – these make great presents, just as the book plates do!

You are free to print or copy any number, so long as it is for non-commercial use only.

Next up is a perennial favourite – Dr Suess! Suessville has plenty of games and activities, including colouring in, mazes, maths, matching pairs and more, all featuring favourite Dr Suess characters. On this page you can search for activities by type or by Dr Suess book.

My thanks go to Damyanti Patel for alerting me to the Dr Seuss activity pages 🙂

    My Home Library seems like a wonderful site. Imagine being able to print out such wonderful artwork and use it. A already has some great craft ideas for them.
    I’ve shared this link with my Saffrontree yahoo group.

    Hi Stacey, Sandhya,
    I think My Home Library is a gem of a site – just perfect for book lovers! I’m always surprised it isn’t better known. Hope you have lots of fun with it.
