Wait you may be thinking! Haven't you shared this book with us before. I have shared this book before here and on the Book Chook two years ago. I thought it was worth another share with look here and I am also sharing it on the Kid's Activities Blog. It is a really wonderful book. I just keeping wanting to share it.
Her solution to the growing list of chores is to find a leprechaun's gold and have the chore issues go away. She accidentally trips over one while searching and catches him. He is supposed to give her his gold. He ends up getting her to do her chores and almost has to give his gold to her. Ninny Nanny ends up not believing the location he tells at the end of his ranting about its final location.
This book is so much fun. JDaniel loved watching Ninny Nanny get tricked and I love the humor in the stories illustrations.
What did we do to explore this book?
I put out a number of sensory activities for JDaniel that recreated the chores Ninny Nanny had to do.
We have had a lot of branches fall from our beech trees this winter. JDaniel loves to gather them up and pile them near the bushes along the back of the house. We call it his "beaver dam". I grabbed some his branches and broke them into tiny twigs.
JDanie was asked to move them from one bowl to the next. It was hard to hold the chopsticks tight enough to move the sticks, but he was able to do it.
How have you explored children's books this week?
