One of my goals as a parent and a teacher is to immerse my child in as many books as possible...to instill a love of reading. I came across an amazing idea a year or so ago at Soulemama that I wanted to put into my own bag of tricks.
The Seasonal Book Basket
The idea stems from the concept of putting together groups of books to take out by season. By doing this, the books don't end up collecting dust somewhere, but become familiar joys of the season. I decided to head out today to pick up some autumn books for Patrick. Here is where we start:
Five Little Pumpkins - Really just a simple board book based on the well loved song we all grew up listening to.
In The Haunted House - Eve Bunting
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything - Linda Williams and Megan Lloyd
A Turkey for Thanksgiving - Also by Eve Bunting
Thanks for Thanksgiving - Julie Markes and Doris Barrette
