Vegetable Soup

We read "Vegetable Soup" by Jeanne Modesitt, which is a great story.

Then we made a comparison chart, and compared the vegetables from Vegetable Soup and Peter Rabbit.

We did something similar for Stone Soup- because there are many versions of the same story, but with different ingredients.

Scholastic Video Collection has Click, Clack Moo cows that type....and more fun on the farm. This is 5 stories narrated and lightly animated. These inclu...

Octopus Book recommendation

We just read

World Book Encyclopedia: Under the sea, by Angela Wilkes
It has great fact pages on lots of sea creatures (including turtle which was great to revisit). Then it has a story about an octopus at the end!

Great Sun book
