I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of children’s books. Maybe it’s because I’m primarily at an elementary school setting now, but I feel like I love them more as an adult then I ever did as a kid.
So, one of my favorite things to do with the kids at my school is to incorporate different books in to the classroom activities we do. This month marks the start of spring, and so I thought I’d start off with one that my school kids loved
Corduroy's Easter Party is a quick and fun read about Corduroy and his friends getting ready for Easter. Corduroy’s friends are excited for the Easter Bunny to visit, but Corduroy isn’t so sure if he believes in the Easter Bunny. It’s a really cute story involving childhood belief, and how to support your friends even if you don’t always agree with how they think. And in the end, Corduroy is pleasantly surprised by a new, furry friend!
If you’re looking for fun crafts to go along with this book, then I definitely recommend these three below!
