Books To Read In Kindergarten
A Splendid Friend, Indeed
Item Call Number:E BLOOM
When a studious polar bear meets an inquisitive goose, they learn to be friends.
Questions to talk about with your child:
The polar bear has to be very patient with goose's questions. When was a time you had to be patient? Was it hard to wait?
How would the story be different if the polar bear wasn't patient and lost his temper? How do you think the goose would feel?
Who is your best friend and why?
Do you know what makes a friend?
Can you be friends with someone who is different than you?
Fun things to do together:
Look at the many colors in Bloom's illustrations. Ask what colors the different objects are. See if your child can locate these colors in his/her room or clothing.
Pack a snack and blanket. Enjoy a picnic outside with your child.
Play "Goose, Goose, Bear" instead of "Duck, Duck, Goose"
Draw a picture of you and your best friend doing something together that you both like.
Have a "Blue / White" color walk. Point out all the different blue and white objects that you can find.
