For the month of June the Summer Virtual Book Club is all about the author Mo Willems. This past week we started with Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. We also had fun with a few activities to go with both books. I was also able to pick up the movie Knuffle Bunny Too from the library. My son had such a blast with those two books that during our weekly trip to the library we picked up Cat the Cat, Who Is That?, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!, The Pigeon Wants a Puppy, and Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed. I do have to say that my personal favorite is Cat the Cat, Who Is That?. I think that the book is perfect for young readers learning and short enough that it holds my son’s attention.
The first book was Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!. Since the book was about friends this day we had RC’s 2 best friends over for a playdate. One only made it through the activities as the other went down for a nap!
They both had a blast playing with shaving cream! This is a great sensory activity. You can do this on paper, in a tray, or like we did on the floor.
Since they were on the floor they both got pretty messy, but it was easy clean up with a quick bath!
They also colored pictures of Amanda, Bear, and alligator. We created our own types of thinking caps and tried to find different ways to surprise each other! Over all it was a very fun-filled day.
RC is teething and just enjoyed a day of relaxation. Here he is watching Knuffle Bunny Too! We watched it with the captions and without. It was nice to see this book come to life.
I think RC’s Favorite book was The Pigeon Wants a Puppy
RC loves his 2 dogs. Here is RC playing with Cin out in the yard. The other side of our yard has mint growing, the dogs like to eat it, I caught RC picking the leaves off and feeding it to Cin.
Personally I think that RC favorite thing was to actually read the books. He loves to look at the pages and listen to someone read to him.
