So we're well and truly into the new year and I'm back to school on Monday so I'm trying to make the most of the break by doing as little school work as possible! Anyone else in the same boat?
Here is another new meme for me. It's called 6 Degrees of Separation and is hosted by Annabel and Emma over at Books are me Favourite and Best.
Book 1: A Ball for Daisy by Chris Raschka
Any child who has ever had a beloved toy break will relate to Daisy's anguish when her favorite ball is destroyed by a bigger dog. In his signature swirling, impressionistic illustrations, two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka explores the joy and sadness that having a special toy can bring. This utterly simple and wordless story will particularly appeal to young dog lovers and teachers and parents who have children dealing with the loss of something special.
If you didn't notice, I linked the title word Daisy!
Book 2: Wrecking Ball: Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 14 by Jeff Kinney
Book 3: Flat Stanley Pays Ball by Jeff Brown
A charming sports story from Jeff Brown's Flat Stanley for Egmont's Blue Banana series. When Stanley Lambchop joins the rounders team, he discovers that being flat can help him play. But not everyone thinks flat players should be allowed. You can't change who you are, though, as Stanley soon discovers . . . Blue bananas are chapter books for children learning to read, suitable for NC Level 2 readers. They are carefully designed educational books for children, supporting their understanding of how to read and develop vocabulary. Blue bananas uses speech bubbles to aid understanding of dialogue and the text encourages children to explore the feelings of characters.
I could have linked the word ball again but instead I linked the author's first name, Jeff for this one.
