Did anyone read to you today? I sure hope so. It was World Read Aloud Day. In kindergarten, we have lots of read alouds and today was no different. Well in a way it was different because one of Mrs. Poulin’s favorite author – illustrators came right into our class via Skype to read her latest creation, The Bear Went Over the Mountain. This is a wonderful and musical story of a bear using his senses throughout all the seasons of the year.
Iza Trapani shared a delightful interactive read aloud of this story right after we settled into school for the day. The class was already excited before the call and Iza warmed them even more with her warm smile and welcome. We sang and listened as the wonderful story unfolded. I can’t wait to add this book to my collection when it becomes available in April 2012.
Here’s a peek at the cover.
