Book of the day

Thursday's book of the day is...

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

Here is another classic bedtime book, but can certainly be enjoyed anytime of the day. When reading this book discuss all of the details in the pictures, and help your child find new things on each page.

Activity #1 Draw a picture of nightime using black or dark blue construction paper. Add the moon and stars. Talk about the moon and how it rises in the evening and falls in the morning.

Activity #2 Go on a mouse hunt throughout the book finding him on each page. You could also take this a step further and cut out paper mice and hide them throughout the house. Then go on a scavenger hunt and have your little one count them as they find them.

Activity #3 Read the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle" to your little one and find parts of this in "Goodnight Moon."

OK, I know I have this book somewhere, but I lost it right after it was given to my baby girl. :(

Yet another great review! :)
