What We Are Reading Repeatedly
This week Froggy has asked for the same two book every single night at bedtime without fail. The first was Magic Schoolbus Butterfly and the Bog Beast. I got it from the library as part of our butterfly theme but it is really more about the predator/prey relationship than it truly is about butterflies. Also it is one of the newer books based off the TV show. It is not written in the original style and not nearly as fun to read or as informative. And yet Froggy loved and could not get enough of it.
The second book is Ghost Wings by Barbara Joosee. This is a sweet, sad book in which a Grandmother prepares her granddaughter for her ultimate departure. The grandmother dies, granddaughter grieves and heals and remembers. It is very well written but very sad. Froggy is picking books on her own so I did not review this book before it came and just was not in the mood. This is our first book by Ms. Joosee and I look forward to reading more of her works.
This week I was extremely grateful for our lunchtime book which is Jungle Book
