Sandra Boynton's newest book, Are You a Cow, is a great new addition to story time circles. There is still a rhyme, but it isn't as complicated as Barnyard Dance. Boyton relies on toddler humor to make this book work. If you ask a toddler if they are a cow, you will most likely get a resounding "NO". Plus, when you do this, you are working on that ECRR2 skill of talking. This is a title that is great for interaction and the kids will be giggling right through.
Are you a cow???
How about a dog? A duck? A frog?
A lamb? A pig? A hippo that is big?
A bear that doesn't frown?
A chicken hanging upside down?
(There's one more, but I won't spoil it.)
The flannelboard pieces are all AccuCut die cut paper pieces. I used markers to embellish.
