Balmy and busy January day

It was a hectic day, with the taste of days to come as lessons have started up again. We read:
  • Boo!, a Clifford the Big Red Dog book - Who says that Halloween books can't be read in January? I like to see Jetta being taken down a peg; she can be a bit hard to take. Emily Elizabeth does, too, for that matter.
  • Stella: Queen of the Snow by Marie-Louise Gay - Stella is so "knowledgeable" as she guides Sam through the delights of his first snow.
  • Dinosaurs' Day Out by Nick Sharratt, one of the Discovery Toys Reading Together at Home collection - this book tells a simple story and much of it references the map that they consult near the beginning. Of all the books we have and have read, this is the only one in which a map plays a key role.
  • Pocoyo and Friends: A first book of friendship (no author) - this book is for kids who are 18 months or 2 years old, as is the show upon which it is based. Reid used to love watching Pocoyo and I still miss it but we only read the books now.
