A couple of weeks ago we visited another independent book store.  I have said that I always purchase something every time I go to one and this time was no different.  I let my three-year-old pick out something and she chose “Pinkalicious and the Pink Drink.”  Now, I am unfamiliar with the Pinkalicious book series.  I know that there are several because I have seen them around, but I always thought they were a bit gimmicky for a book (I tend to be a bit judgmental about books).  However, it was what my daughter wanted and the price was right, so there you go.  I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.  Here is my review…

I am getting sooo excited for my upcoming classes!  I have lined up all of my themes for the next 16 weeks, starting in January.  I thought that I would share some of the winter-themed ideas that I am planning to do to help promote early learning for my preschoolers.

Snow is Falling all Around

(Sung To: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)

Snow is falling all around,

Falling, falling, to the ground.

I catch snowflakes on my tongue.

Building snowmen is such fun.

Snow is falling all around

Falling, falling, to the ground.
