Last Night’s Hit – Cats Got Talent


Last night, we plowed through some picture books.  Cats Got Talent by Ron Barrett received two thumbs up from ML.  I read the story and ML sang the “MEE-YOWLS.”  We both enjoyed the quirky illustrations.  An added bonus.  ML learned two new words… despicable and tumultuous.  And here’s four words to describe the book… a boisterous, rollicking adventure.

ML and I Laughed and Laughed Friday Night! Then, Laughed Some More!

From time to time I bring home as many books by an author as I can get my hands on. Last weekend, it was books written by Judi Barrett and drawn by Ron Barrett.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was familiar to ML. The incredible Ms. Shaw shared it last year. We laughed while we read it. Then, laughed more reading the sequel, Pickles to Pittsburgh. But we howled and howled and howled reading Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing. Then, we howled some more.

This week ML is Star of the Week. Today, three of her favorite things go to school. Duckie’s a given. Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing made the cut. The third item is her rock collection, including yesterday’s acquisition. Thank you Will’s mom for letting us bring the smooth tan-brown rock home.

Looking forward to picking up ML today. . .wondering how her classmates reacted to the illustration for “because it might make life hard for a hen.” ML is a fan of the opossum and goat pages. I think the snake page is hilarious. Although, nothing compares to the hen page. Check out this link to read the entire book Which page is your favorite?
