|Pond Walk by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. This book is great because at the end it shows step by step how to make a rock turtle!|
|Scoot! by Cathryn Falwell. This book focuses on all the actions taking place at the pond (with the exception of the six, very still turtles!)|
|Pond Circle by Betsy Franco. This is a fun add-on story beginning with algae and ending with a girl named Anna.|
|Dimity Duck by Jane Yolen & Sebastien Braun. A cute little story about a duck whose friends with a frog at the pond.|
All of these I checked out at the library with the exception of this last one In the Pond by Anna Milbourne. I bought this one off Amazon along with these little cuties!
I love these because they really make the book "come to life" with the 3-D objects.
The book talks about the eggs, and you have the eggs to show or pull out of a mystery bag while you're reading the story...(extra drama = lots of fun!)
And then there's the tadpole...
and then he grows legs
and his tail gets smaller...
until finally, he's a full-grown frog!
I have lots of fun things planned for us this week! This should help with the staying-in-from-the-heat-all-day-boredom. Unfortunately, I think it would really cool if we could visit an actual pond, but with this heat, it's just not going to happen. : ( oh, well...we'll just pretend. Maddie's starting to get really good at that!
