We started our morning off with this book I found this week at Barnes & Noble. I wanted a book to extend our Letter Ll theme, and something that related to the Lion/Lamb theme. This book is wonderful. "Library Lion" by Michelle Knudsen. It is about a Lion that wanders into the Library and makes himself comfortable. One of the workers, Mr. McBee, feels that Lions don't belong in the Library. Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, feels if the lion is following the rules, he can stay. Which he does, he especially loves story hour. He becomes a help to Miss Merriweather. One thing not allowed in the library is Roaring. And when Miss Merriweather falls down, breaks an arm, and needs help... the lion tries to get Mr. McBee to come and help and has to Roar to het him to help Miss Merriweather. Then the lion feels he has to leave the library because he broke the rules. Everyone is sad when the Lion doesn't come back, even Mr. McBee. Miss Merriweather states that sometimes it's Ok to break the rules, and Mr. McBee goes and finds the Lion to let him know he is missed at the Library, by everyone, especially Miss Merriweather. It is a feel good book, with a wonderful feel good ending... yes, I even got choked up at the end. I LOVE BOOKS!!!
Tomorrow we will finish the face.
Then we got to spend some time outside in the front yard. We usually spend the majority of time in the backyard, but I like to switch it up sometimes to keep the kids interested :) We had a ball riding bikes, decorating coups, and running, running, running!!!
Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss's Birthday!! We will enjoy many Dr. Seuss Books, some Green Eggs & Ham for Breakfast, and making some Oobleck with Bartholomew and Oobleck.
It will be a Fun Filled, Silly Day :)
Lunch today was Pasta & Meatballs (special veggie infused meatballs) with Pink Sauce, crackers, oranges, and Milk
