SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS

THANKS CARLA FOR THE LOVELY MEME!

Just as Saturday mornings on TV during the 50s and 60s, PWR reserves Saturday mornings for kids. This is my recommendation for kids for 6/18/22:

I found this book at my local library when I was looking for a book with a compound word in its title for a challenge. It turned out I had a title with a compound word on my TBR shelf (Mt TBR Challenge), so I used that one for the challenge (What’s in a Name challenge), killing two birds with one book.

I did read this book though, and decided to use it for a Saturday Mornings for Kids review since it was too good not to share. Basically, it was written and illustrated (LOVED the illustrations!) to teach the concept of compound words.

THIS PAGE SAYS, “SOMETIMES WHEN WE’RE READING, WE MIGHT SEE A BIG, LONG WORD.” THEN ON THE NEXT PAGE…”THEN FIND IT’S MADE OF SMALLER ONES AS IN THIS ONE: ‘BLUEBIRD’. “

MANY COMPOUND WORDS ARE INCLUDED IN THE TEXT, SOME OF THEM NOT AS FAMILIAR AS THE FIRST ONES THAT COME TO MIND.

SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS–MARVELOUS!

HAPPY READING KIDS!
