Autumn is upon us! We can feel the crispness in the air as we walk outside each day now.. Soon we will begin to see the changing of the leaves and once again experience the water color painting mother nature has displayed for us..What better time to share the book: The Day Mother Nature Decided To Paint Her House with your students then now! Available on amazon.com in U.S and Europe..A great book to incorporate into lesson planning on season changes, why leaves change colors and tree conservation..
As Patricia Dischler:National Association For Family Child Care/NAFCC President explains in her review of this book:
"The Day Mother Nature Decided To Her Paint House", shares a story about how the season of Fall was discovered. Mother Nature is looking to spruce up her house and paint the walls and she looks to Father Time for help. Colors are selected and placed in each room, but an accident results in a beautiful discovery and the new season is born. Children will love the beautiful colors and illustrations throughout the book and the story does more than just introduce seasons, it encourages conversation with the child.
The supplemental information at the end of the book are perfect for teachers and parents to use in expanding the lessons of the book and answering the many questions about the seasons and trees that children may have. It’s a great start to a full lesson on seasons. The glossary and resources included also help teachers to expand on the lesson.
Sherkness brings the magic of the seasons to life through story and engages children in exploring this topic. " is not only a terrific storybook for children but a valuable resource for teachers and parents."
