When ML started kindergarten last summer, I placed a basket of easy reader books in her room. I wanted a collection of titles she could read herself.
This morning she brought me the book “What is That?” Said the Cat by Grace Maccarone. “Look! It’s like the story we read last night.” I was confused.
There’s a mystery box with the sign, “Do Not Open.” Of course, the animals in the story can’t read. They use various types of force to open the box. Eventually, an alligator pops out. The book she compared it to involved a family discovering a crocodile in their bathtub.
Learning is all about making connections. It made sense to me . . . two books about reptiles hiding.
