5 A Day Books: Traditional Tales
To read all about the ideas and benefits of the 5-a-Day book scheme, please read here and consider joining in!
I loved reading all of your choices last week and I was so happy to have more people joining in the challenge!
This week we are focusing on fairy tales as Cakie is enamoured by them at the moment. I just love these rhyming, lift-the-flap stories by Nick Sharratt and Stephen Tucker. They are perfect for young children as they are not too wordy, very bright and fun and easy to join in with. Brilliant for the 5-a-Day scheme!
I love how Goldilocks is pretty funky and different in this story! Brilliant rhyme and rhythm throughout. This story, in all its forms, is C’s absolute favourite right now. We have versions of it on CD for in the car, as well as a few different retellings in books.
Jack is also a very popular character at the moment with some reenactment of beanstalk climbing going on regularly in our living room! Again, very funny and quirky, retelling the story in a succinct and fun way.
Another classic, simply retold. With plenty of scope for extending the story to all sorts of fun activities and plenty of shoe-related role play games!
Cakie loves to look at all the details in these picture, especially at what food the little pigs have got in their bags! Fun and punchy, just like the others.
I love this story but my only complaint is that Granny gets locked in the cupboard instead of gobbled up by the wolf. I think children love the real versions and should hear them from the word go!
I predict that we will be doing lots of fairy tale role-play and imaginative play this week!
