Let’s Go!

Horses, trucks and things that go took over storytime this week. In “Clip Clop” by Nicola Smee, barnyard animals catch a ride on Mr. Horse, each one wanting Horse to go faster and faster. Kids love the rhythmic text as clip-clop gets faster and faster, resulting in a silly end. A boy describes his father’s work as a truck driver in “Drive” by Nathan Clement. The large illustrations will captivate audiences, especially truck enthusiasts.

Saxton Freymann is known for his vegetable sculptures and he brings them to life in his book “Fast Food.” Vegetables are seen in all the different types of transportation; from rockets to the simplest of transportation- feet!

Trains, rockets, flying saucers, and horse die cuts were used to make transportation crafts. You can make more transportation crafts by visiting http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/vehicles/ or http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/transportation/index.html .
