Okay, I'm doubly cheating with this post as a Read-Along, but you'll have to bear with me. We have a couple of Sandra Boynton books that our kids love. I'd seen Philadelphia Chickens mentioned on the back of them and thought I'd use it for a little post, even though I haven't actually read it.
It turns out it's actually a CD...not a book...OOPS!
But I'm using it for this post anyway, because Hubby hopped on a plane and flew off to Philadelphia today. He'll be spending the weekend interviewing for a fairly prestigious teaching fellowship that would provide for some extra goodies for his classroom, more opportunities to collaborate with other excellent science teachers across the country, and other new teacher support. He made it past the first round of phone interviews and now they've flown him out to interview with about 72 other applicants. About half of the applicants will receive the fellowships. It's a pretty big pat on the back just to have made it this far...but we're hoping he's able to go all the way.
So I'm praying hard and thinking good thoughts for him all weekend.
And while I'm sure Philadelphia Chickens is wonderful, I thought I'd share a couple of our favorite Sandra Boynton books that we actually have read and love.
Sweet Pea love Moo, Baa, La La La by Sandra Boynton. She just calls it "La La La!" I read all the text except the animals sounds, and she fills those in for me. It's got a fun rhythym that makes it a fun read for me too.
