Sleepy Bear's Book Club - ROOM ON THE BROOM

Hi Book Buddies,

I'm too scared to dress up in a costume and go trick or treating. But I'm not too scared to dress up my whippy cream! It's a ghost. Yum!

I have the perfect book to go with my afternoon ghosty whippy cream on top of hot cocoa, too. It's called ROOM ON THE BROOM by Julia Donaldson. This is a super fun book to read because it rhymes. Do you know what that means? Well, it's when the ends of words sound alike.

Here's the beginning of the story, it goes like this:

The witch had a cat
and a hat that was black,
And long ginger hair
in a braid down her back.

Cat rhymes with hat and black rhymes with back. Books like this are great to read out loud. Now you try it.

I'm going to read the next page. Hey, I have an idea, let's see how many words we can find that rhyme. You can use this book or a different book you have at home.

Check back later and we can share.

Bye for now,

Sleepy Bear

Hello Sleepy Bear,

How are you? You are beautiful!You are my best friend.

What are your favorite books?

One of our favorite books is LILY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE by Keven Henkes. It is about a girl who takes her purse to school when she should have left it at home.

Another favorite book is WEMBERLY WORRIED by Keven Henkes.

We studied Keven Henkes' books because we were learning how to make connections.

Bye-bye, Sleepy Bear. We hope you have a great day. We love you, Sleepy Bear.

We LOVE this book and have it on our shelf. We just got it in early October, so new for us. But definitely a good one to recommend!

Hi, Sleepy Bear,

We like to read books. We hope you have fun with your book club! In our class we like to read poems. We have a poem called I LIKE BEARS. The poem is about bears that are different colors! We think you will like this poem.
