Big, Smelly Bear, Corduroy and Snow! Friday 10-30-2015

Can a children’s book REALLY help an adult?
Big Smelly Bear
by Britta Teckentrup
Usually I pick a more informational book for the children’s book that will benefit an adult. However, this book is a perfect example of how anyone can learn from a children’s story! I adore the artwork in this amusing book. It is reminiscent of potato prints.
Such wonderful expressions on the bears too! Cute! Cute!
Anyway, the story helps us to see that SOMETIMES we can change something about ourselves because it benefits another person that we love. You & and children in your life will love this book!
This Week's Fav!
Corduroy
by Don Freeman
I feel like it is absurd to offer this book as a reading suggestion for a children’s favorite. Mostly because I think everyone already knows about Corduroy, don’t they?
This story gives the reader and listener a beautiful and fun look at compassion, responsibility and belonging. Written directly and wonderfully for the very young to understand.
Creative Interactions!
Snow Is falling
By Franklin M. Branley and Holly Keller
One of the things my husband, Scott, & I always worked towards when our children were young is to enjoy learning. They still have that love of learning today as 20-something adults.
Snow Is Falling describes the process of snow development & how snow affects our world. This book is simple enough to not be like a textbook, but offers a couple of experiments to try when it snows outside. When you need more things to do other than sled and build a snowman (both wonderfully fun activities).
Like I said, the book itself offers some ideas for a couple of experiments. Another fun activity that I still would like to do as an adult is to place a piece of cardboard out in the cold or in the freezer for about 10 minutes first then let some snowflakes fall onto the cardboard and then look at them through a good magnifying glass to see the crystal formations.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
