Welcome to Day 1- Oct. 1, 2014
My first book:
This is a lovely book that won the Kate Greenaway Medal. It is a story about a cat, a duck, and a squirrel who live together in harmony, sharing jobs like making delicious pumpkin soup together. All goes well until Duck decides that he is no longer satisfied with his job (putting in a pipkin of salt.)The others will not allow him to change his job, and Duck runs away. Now it is no longer peaceful in the little white cabin...
This is an awesome book to start the month of October with. First, it involves pumpkins, so nobody can say you are not seasonal. However, it is really a magical book about getting along, sharing the work, and caring about others more than yourself. Always good themes to revisit with little people!
