Books of the Week – November 7, 2009
We read The Poky Little Puppy, by Janette Sebring Lowrey during our “P” week, and I completely forgot to mention it in any of my posts that week. This is a wonderful book, and I just have to share it with all of you! 5 little puppies go out to explore the “wide, wide world”, full of curiosity and a little bit of naughtiness. ;) This book is good on so many levels… it talks about senses – smelling, hearing, seeing; there is some counting and adding – 4 of the puppies race up a hillside and count themselves then realize one of them is not there (the poky one of course!); there is a lesson about obedience; there’s even talk about caterpillars and grasshoppers and snakes. There are so many great ideas packed into one little book, the wheels in my brain are really spinning thinking of all the great things we could do with this… a lapbook would be awesome!
We’ve also been reading some books about animals in autumn time. Three of our favorites are Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell
Beaver Pond / Moose Pond, by Jim Arnosky
and Raccoons and Ripe Corn, by Jim ArnoskyAll three of these are great, and do a fabulous job of giving a lot of good information about each animal in story-form.

Have a beautiful day! :)
