So my big win with Eco-Libris arrived last week, and the kiddos and I have been greatly enjoying the entire little green books line thanks to their blog and Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing.
What I have enjoyed most is the dialogue the builder and I have as we read together. As we read I Can Save the Earth!: One Little Monster Learns to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, both he and the dancer happily cried, “Good job lil’ monster!”, as he made good choices. Though, with The Polar Bears’ Home: A Story About Global Warming, there was so much more to learn. We’ve been focusing on the habitat of the polar bears, how large they grow, etc., but he was very curious as to where their momma had gone and why.
It all comes down to the multi-levels of learning. Good books will offer more as you continue to read them, reminds me of another wonderful book…:)
The grower has mostly teethed on the other two books, maybe once that tooth arrives, we’ll be able to sit and read it together, in it’s entirety!
