Roosters in the Library!

Today was the second week of my summer reading program. This week the theme was "Country Time". The stories were all about life on a farm. I started off with Cock-a-doodle-doo. Creak. Pop-pop. Moo  by Jim Aylesworth, illustrated by Brad Sneed. It's such a cute story about a family's day on the farm. This one is full of sounds for the Kinders to repeat for me. (Onomatopoeia those of us who love big words!)
We also read Chicks & Chickens by Gail Gibbons. I just love her books. This was a great little non-fiction book.  It tied into the craft activity. I had everyone create a rooster. (I got the idea from Pinterest.) Even the grand-daddies had fun.
The last book for the day was Thunder-Boom! by Shutta Crum, illustrated by Carol Thompson. We've had so many thunderstorms lately this one was perfect. I highly recommend getting this one if you don't have it.

The farm books we didn't get to, but I love: 
Barn Dance by Bill Martin
Night in the Country by Cynthia Rylant
Duck, Duck, Goose by Tad Hills

Happy Reading!
