on March 7, 2013

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

Book: Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct – Mo Willems

Edwina the Dinosaur

(Charming book, as you’d expect from the author. Had even parents laughing. Edwina and Extinct)

Activity: Most Wonderful Egg In the World – from the book by Helme Heine



(A fun story about three friends who have an egg laying contest to see which is best, and find out they all have unique talents. Quite fun. Eggs)

Book: Emma Kate – Patricia Polacco


(This had a sort of indifferent reception. Lovely pictures, but the cleverness of the story was lost I think. Emma, Elephant)

Activity: Elephants Have Wrinkles video here

Elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles,

elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles everywhere.

On their toes, no one knows Why-ai-ai-ai.

(continue with other body parts)

(Loads of fun! Elephants)

Book: Edward the Emu – Sheena Knowles


(Nice large pics, and a very cute story. Well received, and introduced a new word to most of the kids! Edward, Emu)

(Python eats all the animals, but they cause a din and he coughs them up again. Kids love it, though one boy was a bit concerned for the animals at first. Eat) …for my python, I used a tube scarf and safety pinned some flannel eyes and tongue. Super simple and it’s easy to ‘cough’ out his mean by pushing in through the back.

Book: The End – David LaRochelle

the end

(A very fun book, and a fantastic ending! End)

Activity: Bubbles

(This didn’t match the theme, but the kids love them non-the-less. Enjoy!)
