Preschoolers & Kindergartners What a fun time in life! Time to learn 123's and ABC's. At the same time, they're leaving that babyhood we'll miss so much!

Children's books themes

I am a teacher assistant for kidnergarten aged children. I am looking for a fun way to teach them with books. Does anyone know where I can find themes/activities that have to do with children's books? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Amray!

Actually I have a marvelous book for this! It's called "Picture Book Activities : Fun and Games for Preschoolers Based on 50 Favorite Children's Books" by Trish Kuffner. She is the author who wrote The Toddler's Busy Book, The Preschooler's Busy Book, and the Children's Busy Book.

Anyway, I love this Picture Book Activities book. This is what I wrote with the excerpt:

This book is based on a wonderful concept that takes you outside of the norm of reading to your child. Author Trish Kuffner shows us how to incorporate play, songs, crafts, recipes, games, and other interactive activities into their favorite picture books.

To see an excerpt that will show you exactly what this book does (this excerpty uses Little Bear as the example) go here:
