12 Best Picture Books For Imagination.

Imagenation.jpg

Our topic this term has been imagination. This is a round of the best picture books which link to Imagination, I have read ALL these books with my kinder kids and they loved them!

 

 

The children loved looking at Quest and Journey, they could retell the story and not worry about getting it right as there are no words. It really encouraged them to think and imagine what story the pictures are telling.

 

Not a stick or box really helped them imagine what everyday items could become.

 

The children gave the story machine a big thumbs up! They love how the letters made pictures.

 

It might be an apple was a great book and we talked about lots more things that an apple might be.

  

This book just ate my dog was a funny book that had the kids laughing and wanting to  help shake out the lost characters.

We loved reading all these books and they really helped us improve our imaginations.

Three Quotes, Three days – Day 2

So I am taking up the three days, three quotes challenge as passed on by Meg from DrMegSorick, who write a great blog about writing and sharing her journey to self-publishing.

The idea is to post between 1-3 quotes a day for three days challenging a new person each day.

Here is day two, I wanted to share some of my favourite travel/ Tolkien quotes today (I may get over excited and share more than 3)

So today’s challenge goes out to the wonderful Lynz at Lynz Real Cooking. She constantly inspires my taste buds with her recipes. She also gives some interesting insights into life in Saudi and some beautiful pictures. Maybe some food based quotes will be coming our way?

I read a lovely blog post over at live 🙂 Life about a book called Please, Mr Panda.

Please, Mr. Panda

A panda has a tray of Doughnuts to share and goes around asking some creatures if they would like one. A variety of responses are given but only one gets the doughnuts. Continue reading “Please, Mr Panda”

What I’ve been reading October

Here is what i have read in October.

Magic and murder engulf the realm of Kelewan.
Fierce warlords ignite a bitter blood feud to enslave the empire of Tsuranuanni. While in the opulent Imperial courts, assassins and spy-master plot cunning and devious intrigues against the rightful heir.
Now Mara, a young, untested Ruling lady, is called upon to lead her people in a heroic struggle for survival. But first she must rally an army of rebel warriors, form a pact with the alien cho-ja, and marry the son of a hated enemy. Only then can Mara face her most dangerous foe of all–in his own impregnable stronghold.- Goodreads

I thought i would start updating what i’ve been reading each month here on my blog with a small review of what i thought of the book.

Previous Reading History

I was interested to see the next year how many paperbacks i read compared to kindle books and so it started. I have got more interested in stats and this has encouraged me to read more out of my comfort zone. So, this year, i have been trying to read more non-fiction books.
