“Inside This Book (are Three Books)” preschool book club

We began by talking about how books are made: who writes them (author) and who draws the picture (the illustrator).  We talked about stories and using our creativity.

Put your hands in the air
And touch the ground.
Put your fingers on your nose
And move your tongue all around.
Put your hands on your shoulders.
Put your elbows on your knees.
Put your chin in your hands and say,
“Read me a story, please.”

Read Inside This Book (are Three Books) by Barney Saltzberg.

We then made our own books like this post from Premeditated Leftovers.

I love how creative the kids got. One girl wrote her story about a girl swimming in green slime. 
One boy kept wrote letters (and some shapes that weren’t letters) and then made his mom read the silly sounds he wrote.





And one little girl wrote a story about a unicorn who lost its horn in the woods. A girl found it and returned it to the unicorn, who then gave the girl a ride to thank her.
