And I even managed to read two books instead of one this week. The first book, Owl Bat/ Bat Owl, tells a tale of new friends without words. Now in all honesty, I don't normally like wordless picture books, but this book kept my interest until the very end. An owl family and a bat family share the same sleeping branch where everything but sleep seems to take place. This book offers the readers a wonderful opportunity to talk about the action each illustration offers and would be great for kids ages four to six.
The second book, There's a Bear on My Chair, told a tale with words a plenty. And not just any words, but rhyming words. Extremely well written rhyming words. A mouse shares his feelings of outrage over a bear sitting in his chair. And quite frankly, the bear just does not care that he is sitting in the mouse's chair. A fun and colorful book, children from four to eight will think this story great!
Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. Also be sure to drop by Literacy Musings Mondays for more great blogs as well as my personal website Fun With Aileen where you will find more on reading, writing, and my very own chapter and picture books. And finally, you can find me on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
