At gymnastics, after discussing why books would be at gymnastics, we read:
- Winnie the Pooh and His Friends Blackberry Surprise based on A.A. Milne, illustrated by Atelier Philippe Harchy - a much better story than I'd expected. Many Winnie the Pooh stories disappoint me as the characters aren't as I remember them, even in the original stories. Pooh is greedy, Rabbit is grouchy and Tigger is incredibly self-centred.
- Rose and Dorothy by Roslyn Schwartz - Reid's empathy is well-developed. She was said that Rose said mean things about Dorothy and Dorothy moved out of their shared house.
- Tickle Me Elmo by Stephanie St. Pierre and illustrated by David Prebena - I wasn't sure about this one but it turned out to be a fun discussion of what a tickle looks, smells, tastes and sounds like. It's important not to judge a book by its cover - or licensed character.
