This morning as the children entered the classroom, they were shocked to find lily pads scattered across the floor and even on the tables! It was a complete mystery! As investigators, the children discovered that frogs may have entered through the window which was left wide open. Whoops! What made things even more peculiar was the fact that our new book in English is called ‘Tuesday’ in which frogs magically fly on lily pads during the night and invade a city!
This week, I have chosen books that are perfect for the Easter Holidays, but first, thank you to Chris in Year 5 for the blog post title!
Egg by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet is a hilarious picture book about a non-conforming Egg. Perfect for Easter, or any time of the year, children will love telling the story themselves, looking at the pictures and using different voices for the various ‘egg’s. Plus the egg-shaped format adds to the eggy fun!
When an odd egg turns up with a big head and a pointy bottom, the other eggs don’t know what to make of it. Can they make the odd egg conform to Normal Egg Standards? The other eggs try turning it upside down, and even make it wear a hat on its bottom to show which side is ‘up’, but it takes the clever upside-down egg to show them that eggs can be any way up and still be eggs.
Clara Claus Saves Easter by Bonnie Bridgman is filled with fun, friendship and fantasy. With Easter activities at the end of the book, this is a fabulous read for younger children looking for a chapter book to get stuck in to.
Christmas may be over for another year, but when Rowan the forest elf goes missing and the Santa Scouts are in trouble, Clara Claus and her brother Nick must investigate.
Traveling from their home in the North Pole, they enlist the help of Gordon the grumpy gnome to track down the mysterious E.B. But with bunnies and squirrels to train and chocolate to wrap, can Clara and Nick crack the case to deliver the perfect Easter?
The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop by Kate Saunders is packed with magic, adventure and chocolate – a winning combination in any book! All I can say is I wish I lived at 18 Skittle Street…
Oz and Lily’s family have inherited an ancient chocolate shop and they’re moving in upstairs. It’s the perfect home, apart from the small fact that it’s haunted. And then they discover some solid gold chocolate moulds – with magic powers!
Soon the ghosts are joined by some evil villains determined to get their hands on the priceless secrets of the magical chocolate.
