One of ML’s favorite books is No Jumping on the Bed by Tedd Arnold. Walter’s father warns him if he continues to jump on his bed, one day it will crash through the floor. He continues to jump, and the bed crashes through the floor. Walter falls through the ceiling of their top floor apartment. Along the way he meets a variety of neighbors as he crashes through their ceilings.
Recently, I read ML Creak! Said the Bed by Phyllis Root and illustrated by Regan Dunnick. When I finished, she said, “Mom, It’s like No Jumping on the Bed.” She’s right. Both books show big cracks in the floor.
Once again, ML’s making those connections. I can’t wait to see the connections she makes this school year.
