I could not think of a more original title to this post, so I summarized three of the early reader books we have enjoyed this week. Kind of creates an interesting title, doesn't it? In keeping with our animal books, we have been reading One Tiny Turtle, by Nicola Davies:
Another fun book about animals is Even an Octopus Needs a Home, by Irene Kelley:
One book which came with our Georgia Cyber Academy curriculum that the children loved is called Tye May and the Magic Brush by Molly Bang. This is a little more than an "easy reader" and still a bit challenging for Catherine. I read it to her a few times before she was able to read it to me. Great practice! But, the girls both loved the story.
Everything she paints with the magic brush comes to life, which has some positive, and negative, consequences. The girls loved this book! We have been doing a lot of painting lately. Now, every time the girls paint, they talk about what would happen if their paintings came to life. I love blending different subjects together ... art and reading!
