I’ve been reading Jan Thomas with many of the younger students and we just love her books!
Yesterday I began our storytime by showing this picture and asking the children what is was and how it grows. They had many answers, including a carrot, a vegetable and a radish. A couple guessed correctly that it is a turnip. And from there we launched into Thomas’ book, A Birthday for Cow.
Pig and Mouse are planning a big celebration for Cow’s birthday and are baking a delicious cake, while Duck tries to get them to use turnips. If you like the story, you an spend $10 and buy the app for it.
This is hilarious and a perfect book for getting your kids all excited. The cows are having a great time, at the expense of Chicken’s sofa. Chicken isn’t too pleased either. Great read, but a pretty poor choice for bedtime or trying to calm the kids down.
Everybody rhymes but Bob. Ed, Ned, and Ted are wondering what Bob’s problem is… why can’t he rhyme all the time?
Jan Thomas has written a number of other great titles, so check out her books!
