Excerpt from the March 2019 GSLP Home + School Connection Newsletter
By Lori Forcey, GSLP Pre-Kindergarten Teacher
March’s Book Nook touches on the current EPK 3 Roads theme and Pre-K’s Self-Awareness theme while adding in a dash of springtime wishful thinking. The result is three new titles that can be found in our lending library (just inside the door to Mrs. Coxson’s office). Come check them out!
Fish is Fish, by Leo Lionni: Minnow and Tadpole are water-bound besties who love to swim together amongst the weeds. But when Minnow grows into Fish while Tadpole becomes Frog, things take quite a turn. Frog, armed with the ability to breathe air, leaves the pond — and his lonely buddy, Fish — to explore the world, returning with exotic tales of birds, cows and people. When Fish makes the decision to hurl himself into land and follow the freewheeling life of his buddy, things don’t quite turn out the way he plans. Available in our Family Lending Library and for $4 from Scholastic Book Club.
Pugs In a Bug, by Carolyn Crimi: Six dapperly dressed pudgy pugs are off to the Pooch Parade in a convertible bug. Filled with rhymes and dog puns, this little story will charm mutt lovers of all sizes. Available in our Family Lending Library and for $3 from Scholastic Book Club.
Chrysanthemum, by Kevin Henkes: Chrysanthemum loves her unique name until it begins to earn her some unwanted attention at school. Now she wants to just be like everyone else. Will Chrysanthemum again embrace what makes her original? Available in our Family Lending Library and for $4 from Scholastic Book Club.
