With the warmer weather our thoughts have turned to growing and planting fruit and vegetables. Grow Your Own ‘A yummy story about growing (and eating!) your own food’ is a great story for initiating discussion about how fruit and vegetables grow.
I love the way that Jane Hissey’s adorable characters try to help Jolly Tall, the giraffe, understand what snow is. Little Bear, Zebra and Rabbit do their best to help their friend with the support of the two more senior members of the playroom, Old Bear and Bramwell.
The Paper Dolls is a beautifully gentle story about a childhood activity which encouraged us to make our own paper doll chains 🙂
The first Elmer book about a patchwork elephant and his friends has always been my favourite of the Elmer stories and it is usually my daughter’s first choice from the Elmer stories that we have. However, we have just met Super El, the flying superhero elephant!
The Little Raindrop is a great book to introduce young children to the water cycle. It is primarily a story although non fiction concepts (precipitation and evaporation) are introduced which makes it great to use as part of a water or weather topic in the Early Years classroom.
It’s snowman weather again! Pip the rabbit and Posy the mouse are having fun in the snow but they just can’t agree on what to build! Can they find a way to resolve their differences and play together nicely in Pip and Posy: The Snowy Day?
