Blogging 101 Alumni feature

dr suess.jpgHappy Friday!!!!!!!

I have decided to step up and become a much more active member  on our little community. So, to celebrate this I’m sharing my favourite quotes in our new FRIDAY Feature – 3 quotes.

One of the most fun set of books to read aloud to children are the Dr Suess books. Dr Suess is actually the pen name for Author and illustrator Theodor Seuss Geisel. His books have become some of the most popular children’s books of all time selling over 600 million copies which have been translated into more than 20 languages. He adopted the pen name Dr Suess during his time at Dartmouth college and the University of Oxford. He worked as an illustrator for many years and during WW2 he worked as an animator for the animation department of the United States of America government. After the war, he concentrated on his children’s books and has published over 60, many of which have become films, Tv series and even a broadway musical.

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.

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

Here are some are some of the places i have found great ideas and inspiration from  Continue reading “How to find inspiration, ideas and wonderful reading books”
