One Monday Morning
I can't tell you how thankful I am for all this rain! Our lawn was beginning to look like we didn't care about it. It's been so long since our last day of rain that the kids have delighted in this seemingly unusual occasion. And you know how I feel about rainy days . . . they're the perfect excuse to enjoy pots of tea and snuggle down with some good books . . . oh, and the kids.
Today we're reading One Monday Morning by Uri Shulevitz. If you haven't checked out a Uri Shulevitz book yet, here's your chance with the perfect rainy day read. Shulevitz presents an enchanting, imaginative book that also teaches the days of the week and sequencing skills. And, as in most of Shulevitz's books, his illustrations depict a broader, detailed story than his actual text. So, really, why would you want to miss out on this enriching book?
