Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? By Susan A. Shea; Illustrations by Tom Slaughter
This is an amazing picture book in my opinion! Susan has written a rhyming text that is clever and teaches children the concept of living things! Tom Slaughter’s illustrations are wonderful, and this is even a bit of a “Peek-a-boo” book. Can a stool grow? No, of course not, but when you unfold the flap–Tom’s illustrations show how maybe it could grow into a chair? Peek-a-boo–there’s a chair under that stool’s flap and so on. (laughs) Your children at home and in the classroom will love this book with a sweet ending about our most important living things–them!
I would love to do my usual post with all my activities, but I have an 18-month-old daughter with an ear infection and medication that is upsetting her stomach. She is not sleeping, and all you parents out there are currently nodding your heads.
Share this book with your children. Conversations about living things will naturally progress. You can even categorize those living things into animals and plants. . .
