It is the last week of term before Easter holidays and it is frantic at school, so the thought of just walking out the door to the park for a little time out really does appeal at the moment. Perhaps I'll get to do it next week. I have several favourite park books, but am only going to mention a few.
1. Off to the Park! by Stephen Cheetham because it is new, tactile and perfect for preschoolers.
2. Not Like That, Like This! by Tony Bradman because it always makes me smile when I read it with classes and see their reaction to what the father has done while visiting the park with his son.
3. A Walk in the Park and Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne because they are perfect for discussions about point of view and how each participant can have been in the same place and yet have a very different story to tell.
So sometime in the holidays savour a walk in the park, breathe in the fresh air and take sometime time to reflect on the good things in life.
