I've already posted about several of the books we read this read this week:
Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban, that we read with our snack of bread and homemade microwave jam. I also found a very nice teacher's guide for this book, here, that explores badgers, nutrition, as well as making bread and jam. I'm not sure whether we'll follow through with it or not though, this is one of my favorite children's books, I might just like to leave it as a special book for story time.
Dinosaur Roar! by Paul Stickland, which we read for our stART project, using the homemade cooked play dough, is a simple, colorfully illustrated, board book about opposites. (I checked the play dough this morning too, and it is still in good shape!)
And, B is for Big Sky Country, A Montana Alphabet by Sneed B. Collard III, which I praised in my post about Sleeping Bear Press. Several more state books in the series arrived in at the library yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to read them to the children yet, because my twelve year old snatched them, to read himself. That is high praise for any series.
We also had one more Loreen Leedy book straggle in at the library - Celebrate the 50 States!, arriving at a perfect time, with the books above.
It is another one of her books directed at older children, but which the younger children ended up enjoying too. It is not so much a story book, as it is a reference book. Each page holds two states, so four are together, when the book is open, all with little pictures, and facts scattered across them. There are also trivia questions, like "What is a glacier made of?", throughout the book, with the answers listed at the back.
All the images above, were taken from the Montana public libraries' shared catalogue.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
