Books of the Week – March 6, 2010
Click on the button at the top to see some great book suggestions for children at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns!
The Ant and the Elephant, by Bill Peet:
This is by far our favorite this week, and I think will make it’s way into our top 20 favorites. I can’t believe I haven’t seen or heard about this book before! It’s a great story about being helpful and being thankful. It would be great for a story sequencing activity too; there are a variety of animals that come along and end up needing help in various ways. If only I had time to make up some story sequencing cards, sigh. If you haven’t read this book, look for it – you won’t be disappointed!
The Roundabout Train, by Betty Ren Wright:
This is a cute book about a big diesel train that thinks he’s bigger, faster, and better than the other older trains. He is taught a lesson about being friendly in a fun way. M has been a bit boastful himself lately, so this was a good way to help him see how unpleasant that kind of behavior can be for others.
Have a beautiful day! :)
