As April continues we are still enchanted by mystical and magical creatures. This week we read Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood By Timothy Knapman. Could you imagine finding a Benjamin? I asked my little guy what would he do if he found a dragon.
"Mama, ROAR" was his sweet response. Then he said he would share his chocolate. Which is cute since he has so much from his Easter Basket.
The illustrations in this book are amazing. The colors vibrant and and the little notes detailing his favorite items is a special treat.
I hope you are able to get a copy from your local library or join our SHARE A BOOK program and receive a FREE copy. Let us know what you would teach your Benjamin?
Keep turning those pages....
