Mothers Day Books
Where's Our Mama by Diane Goode is cute little story about two children who have lost their mama. The fun part of the story is listen to how they view their mama. We used it as a launching point to talk about what to do if you do get lost. And yes Froggy does know Ima's name is.
Mama Zooms by Jane Cowen Fletcher is as colorful inside as it looks from the outside. The text is very simplistic and that may be a turn off to some people. This book reminded us stylistically of another favorite of ours, And Shira Imagined. Froggy loves any book which shows the comparision between what a child sees in his/her imagination and reality. I liked that demonstration of Mom's capability.
My absolute favorite of the group was Trade In Mother by
We did read other things besides Mother books this week. We finally finished a Magic Treehouse book. I have been trying to get Froggy interested in this serious for awhile now and something just clicked. The series has been highly rated and I can seem some point to it. Froggy read the first chapter of Dinosaurs Before Dark to me and I read the rest. The story is fun and slightly educational but the writing/grammer is atrocious and not what I want my child learning. I like that is a chapter book with a decent story that is at a reading level that Froggy can attempt even if she needs some help but could that not be coupled with proper punctuation and complete sentences?
