I love this book! I can't recommend it enough to kids or adults first learning how to sew. Sophie (a kid herself!) gives great advice for each project and every page is very visual. My first three projects (zipper pouches, a lunch bag, and a headband) were out of this book and I found the instructions well written and helpful.
I love this story! It's great for individual reading and for group sharing. Anansi is such a clever character, but Little Bush Deer gives him a run for his money! This book has a great sense of humor and beautiful illustrations.
Emma Dodd does it again with her newest title! I love nearly everything by her, and this one might take the cake- literally! A little boy has a birthday party and when a bear shows up to entertain, the family doesn't bat an eye. The combined humor plus Dodd's beautiful illustrations make this book a winner.
I really like this cd! Sometimes cds for kids are super annoying, but this is fantastic. Milkshake has great vocals and a friendly acoustic sound. They sing about positive, upbeat concepts like accepting yourself for who you are, counting, dancing, and eating breakfast. My favorite song is "Scared," which talks about feeling afraid but being able to find comfort in the company of friends and family. A+!
This book is absolutely stunning to look at. The text is simple and peacefully describes rain as it drops and settles on plants and leaves. Beautiful photography shows insects on dewy petals and glittering spider webs. Although this one works well enough read aloud to large groups, its magic can be truly beheld by one or two readers at a time. The last few pages also provide interesting facts about rain and the water cycle.
