Our latest read aloud is Lulu and The Brontosaurus written by Judith Viorst and illustrated by Lane Smith.
Why I know we are going to love this book?
# 1 I read it to my own children and it was a huge success Read my review here.
#2 Throw yourself on the floor tantrums, calling Lulu a pain in the . . . butt, snake squeezing, tiger taming What more could you ask for?
#3 There is a very catchy song repeated throughout:
I’m gonna, I’m gonna, I’m gonna, gonna get A bronto-bronto-bronto Brontosaurua for a pet. I’m gonna, I’m gonna, I’m gonna, gonna get A bronto-bronto-bronto Brontosaurua for a pet.
#4 Judith Viorst!
#5 Lane Smith!
Enough said, but in case you are not an absolute fan of either Viorst or Smith, let me help you out . . .
Who doesn’t love Viorst‘s Alexander’s Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day?
A book that is such a classic to teach connecting because it is so appealing and comforting for those of us that have days that could just be better.
I just read Lane Smith‘s Grandpa Green today.What an exquisite book!
The simple colour scheme – lush greens, black and white and speckled this and that hinted at here and there . . . Honouring gardens, a lifetime of memories shared across generations. Read and savour.
