|Moon Loon by Sandy Ferguson Fuller|
This book reminded me of summers in Canada. The call of the loon is such a beautiful and erie sound. Boogs and I researched loons this morning to hear the call of the loon. Boogs enjoyed learning about the four calls of the loon and watching a loon try to eat a scuba diver's fin. The girl in the story hears the call of the loon and worries about the loon being all alone on the lake. We also examined a Canadian "Loonie", the $1 coin, and discussed that the Common Loon is the official bird of Ontario. In the lunchbox: almond butter & Nutella sandwich with fruit leather loon head, blueberry & blackberry lake, Babybel girl, goldfish for the fish in the lake, and spinach & broccoli for the shrubs and grass along the edge of the lake.
This morning, when I was putting the final touches on Boogs' lunch, I bumped the container with my elbow. His lunch went all over the floor. What a mess! We read The Magic Raincoat by Ryan David. It is about a little girl who makes wishes with her magic raincoat and discovers that it is best not to use it too often. I asked Boogs what he would wish for if he had a magic raincoat. His response, "I would wish for a hamster, for Daddy to be paid in gold so we could be rich, and for Martin Luther King to be back and not shot." Sometimes I wish I could peek in and read his mind, just to see what is going on in there.
