Strange Dances And Long Flights By Patricia M. Stockland

Today Grace and I learned about which type a squirrel uses their tails for shade, which type of fish swim as far as 930 miles to have their babies and other fun & fascinating facts about animals in her new book from the library.
The book is called Strange Dances and Long Flights A Book About Animal Behaviors.  Written by Patricia M. Stockland and Illustrated by Todd Ouren.  Grace and I had a lot of fun reading this book.  The pictures were great and the information was awesome!  There were some facts I was not aware of.  We had a fun time reading it together. 

Her favorite part was the back of the book.  There were quizzes, fun facts and glossary words.  I love books that give you fun ways to learn and remember the facts and information your children just read. 

It also gives you a web site to visit to learn more about safe, web sites related to the book.  If interested you can check out the Facthound home page. 

While Grace and I were checking these pages out we came across a web site that was pretty cool.  It is called Capstone    There are word searches, games, puzzles, projects, recipes and many more activities.  Grace loved it for the word searches.  We didn't get any further than that.  It was lunch time.  I encourage you to check it out with your kids.
