Beginning this month (April begins tomorrow), I was hoping to focus on birds. Bird books. Bird art (both famous and ours). Bird watching. Birds.
I have several book buckets going at any one time, in addition to the volumes on our shelves. Right now we have the general library bucket, the Easter bucket, and the bird bucket.
Today from our bird bucket, we read the following two.
Both books were delightful and just full of wonderful information! The artwork in the flamingo book was lovely - watercolor and gouache. I showed the children how to look amongst the copyright information of a picture book to discover what art medium the illustrator used.
I think tomorrow we must do some sort of flamingo drawing/painting!
