Here are the two books I used to talk about our neighborhood today. I thought this craft from Funshineexpress was so cute and clever! It really inspired our conversation about our neighborhood and start our discussion of our upcoming topics of safety.
Sheila Rae is about a little mouse who is so brave- she decides to walk home a different way from school one day and gets lost! It's a really cute book- and that isn't the main story line... but it was a good intro to how to safely cross streets. We talked about safely walking home from school.
The Duck in a Hole book- is just a cute story about a girl who trying to help a duck get out of a hole. She has to brainstorm a bunch of possible ideas. It is a really cute book... it doesn't really have anything to do about neighborhoods... but this little girl found the hole in her "neighborhood".
(PS- you don't have to host a book club to enter- but if you DO host a book club for kids I am interested to know! So tell me a little bit about your group!)
