Posting for world book day challenge day 4 prompt : Nursery rhymes
This is my most favorite prompt in this contest. I would have definitely gone with ‘ Wheels on the bus ‘ but I am yet to get a book for the song. I am not impressed with the ones on Amazon. Everytime I try to block when it’s posted on preloved book pages on Instagram someone else blocks before me, so I’m just waiting on this one.
But definitely next on the list is ‘ Old McDonald had a farm EIEIO ‘.
Whenever the song is been played on being sung Cheeni immediately starts singing Ee Aa Ee Aa . How sweet is that. Not only that she also runs to get this book to you to read it out for her.
The rhyme is about a farmer and the animals he keeps in his farm – the chick, the duck ,the dog ,the cat ,the sheep, the cow, the horse and the pig.
The lyrics are catchy , with the animal sounds moo, baa, bow wow ,meow , neigh ,oink, chick and quack.
We recently got few magnets of animal set from @ishvadesigns which made this rhyme learning even more easier and fun.
Cheeni brings these magnets from fridge making these animal sounds when we sing.
What Cheeni loved about this book
* The colourful pictures of animals
* It’s small and handy for her to hold it and dance.
This book was also from @sunshinebooks.

World book day challenge day 1 prompt : Earth

A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way,

a counselor, a multitude of counselorrs.

~ Charles Baudelaire

Posting for the prompt #1 of #worldbookdaychallenge Earth.

What more describes the life on Earth than our very own Eric Carl’s The very hungry caterpillar.

This beautiful book depicts the life of a caterpillar evolving into a butterfly. Cheeni learnt the days of the week, numbers, colors and what not.

Here is what was the inspriation for this book in his words: “One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called A Week with Willi the Worm. Then later my editor, who didn’t like the idea of a worm, suggested a caterpillar and I said “Butterfly!” And the rest is history.”

The life cycle is beautifully written down and illustrated the egg , the caterpillar, the cocoon and the big butterfly.

Did you know the book was first published in 1969, that’s when our parents were studying. And it is still selling over 49 million copies worldwide and is being translated over many world languages.

The book also has bright pictures of sun, moon ,leaves ,food which makes it even more interesting for kids .

This made me discover a lot more of Eric Carl’s book to introduce to her.

Cheeni loves it when I read it out loud to her. She recognizes sun and the moon now.

What Cheeni loved

* The big pictures

* The colours

* The way it’s illustrated.

She now knows numbers, colors, sun, moon.

Kids these days are more interested, given the choice of books they have and their types.
