Once Upon A Monday

This weeks kids book is: Miss. Spider's Tea Party by David Kirk

This is a wonderful book, full of beautiful colors. It is a counting book but more importantly it teach the reader a very important life lesson - to give everyone a chance, no matter who they are. When I taught preschool, this was one of the children's favorite. It is a tad wordy for preschool students but the lesson within is so important (so I would always use fun voices for all the insects within the story). The brightness of the bugs usually keep a preschool aged child pretty entertained.

Claire (6 1/2 months) thinks it is pretty long to keep my attention right now but the pictures are very pretty to look at!

Megan and Eric think this is a great book, with great meaning. We feel it is for older kids, but even now and then we get it off the shelf and read it to Claire. We think she will get more meaning out of the story when she is a bit older but for now the "pretty bright" pictures and fun voices will have to do for now!

M & E rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
