5 a day books

Kate at An Amazing Child is hosting a blogging event this week to celebrate the birthday of Eric Carle on 25th June. We are glad to be part of it. Kate has planned a whole week long activities about his books. There will be many other wonderful bloggers writing about his books, doing art activities and play ideas to go with his books! So come back as there will be more people adding in until saturday. 

This week's our 5-a-Day Books are all Eric Carle stories! 
First is Eric Carle’s most famous and well-loved book- The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This book has been a favorite with Putti ever since the first time I read it to her. She loves poking her fingers through the holes in the food and is amazed with the long list of food that the caterpillar eats on Saturday! It is the first book she learnt to read all by herself. She has known the book by heart for more than couple of months now, yet never gets bored with it. We both love reading it !!
The Grouchy Ladybug
The Grouchy Ladybug is the story of a grouchy ladybug who is looking for fight, challenges everyone it meets regardless of their size. I also love that the book takes the ladybug through her day hour by hour with little illustrated clocks on top of each page. This is putti's favorite part of the book and she points to the clock, reads the time and then the story..
This was the first book putti asked me to get her. She was introduced to it at her preschool. Appealing animals in bold colors are seen and named in a rhyming question-and-response text that delights as it invites young readers and listeners to participate actively.

The Tiny Seed
 The book talks about the life cycle of plants, as one tiny seed which faces many challenges, grows into an enormous sunflower, which then produces more seeds in its turn. The book introduces the seasons and the role of the weather in seed germination. And ultimately tells of the importance of just the right environment in order for a plant to grow.
