Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: First the Egg by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

Why we love this book:

Spring has sprung and new life is blossoming all around us! This book takes a fabulously simple look at life cycles. Laura Vaccaro Seeger tackles the question: Which came first the chicken or the egg? First comes the egg, then the chicken. First the tadpole, then the frog, first the seed . . .

. . . then the flower. To say we love the illustrations is an understatement. As we always say, “Sometimes less is more!” The paintings are gorgeous with bold colors, while the unpretentious peek-a-boo pages draw the children into the transformations. I was seriously ready to start painting myself after reading this book to the children. This is definitely one to add to a study on life cycles.

I also like the repetitive language development of the vocabulary first and then. The story adds in the concepts of, “First the word then the story. . . . First the paint then the picture.” What an excellent starting point for a brainstorming session.

Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY? April 24, 2017 at 3:42 am

Haha! I am still laughing from how horrible that kid made all college students look. I don’t think that as students we have to agree with everything that our professors teach us, but students should also be open minded enough to consider the option of it being true. As far as the Crossfire segment with Jon Stewert, I wish more people could share his opinion. Why isn’t there more debate with EDUCATED ARGUMENTS rather than fighting? Just like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop…the world may never know. April 24, 2017 at 4:55 am

Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are looking to swap methods with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.
