|Numero Uno by Alex Dorros and Arthur Dorros|
Boogs really liked this book, he asked if there were a sequel to it. Hercules, the strongest man in the village, is constantly arguing with Socrates, the smartest man in the village, about who is the most important. They have to work together to build a new bridge and the constant arguing upsets the rest of the villagers. In the end, Boogs decided that both strength and intelligence are important but he thought it was best to be smartest rather than strongest. In the lunchbox: pb&j Hercules and Socrates, pretzel and mini rice cake bridge, blueberries crossing the bridge, veggies and yogurt. I TRIED using Karen's food color painting technique from What's In John's Lunch Bag? I definitely lack her skills.
|The Little Red Hen (Makes A Pizza) retold by Philemon Sturges|
This book is a cute retelling of the classic Little Red Hen story. We have had this book for a long time and frequently re-read it. Boogs likes all the lists of things Hen has in her kitchen cabinets, fridge, and pantry. In the lunchbox:Tomato & basil Little Red Hen tortilla with candy eye and homemade pepperoni pizza. Boogs woke up at 5:15 this morning so we had plenty of time to make it. Other items in the lunchbox are also items in Hen's kitchen - tomatoes, (Goldfish) crackers, raisins, and (strawberry) milk. Bento Blog Network is having a red themed week this week. This is my entry.
