Earlier this week, I revealed that we were lucky to be paired with Jodie of Growing Book By Book, shared a little about what we sent to her, and told you about her wonderful blog (here it is in case you missed it). Now it’s time to talk about what we received from Jodie of Growing Book by Book. Please head over there when you get a chance and check out her post on the package she received from us (Shout! Shout it out! by Denise Fleming.)
The Sugar Snaps were so excited to open the box Jodie sent us. The book she chose was Goodnight California by Adam Gamble and Cooper Kelly. This book is part of the Goodnight Our World series. Children can say goodnight to the place they live or any number of areas in the world as an educational experience. The Sugar Snaps loved the colorful illustrations.
Jodie came up with a great series of “goodnight” themed activities and crafts. The first activity we tried was the foam letters that Jodie made by writing each of the letters of the Sugar Snaps’ names onto foam shapes. They are learning letters right now so this was perfect for them. She suggested that we add food coloring to the water (as we often do) and they chose blue. They loved seeing their names in the bath and Ryder made himself a fashionable star hat.
