Goodnight Moon

Today for My First Book Club, we read Goodnight Moon, and made "Goodnight Moon" mobiles. Such a great story by Margaret Wise Brown. My First Book Club is every Tuesday at 10 a.m. Next week's story is The Hat by Jan Brett. Hope to see you there!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

Today for Book Worms, we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Then we made our own coconut trees using markers and foam alphabet letters. While doing the craft we listened to "Chicka Chicka Funk" (a fun little rendition of the story). It was a blast! Next week for Book Worms, we're reading Clifford, the Big Red Dog. See you there!
