My Favorite Children's Book

  This is my favorite children's book for a couple of reasons. It has fun, colorful illustrations, and is written in predictable text. I also enjoy the humor of Robert Munch. I have read most of his books and love all that I have read so far.  In this story, Bridget wants some markers because all of her friends have them.  Unfortunately, Bridget's mother has heard about those markers and says no. After a little convincing, she buys Bridget 500 markers.  The antics that Bridget gets into because of her new and ever improving supply of markers is very entertaining.  I think preschool age children can relate to the rules of not coloring on the wall or themselves and that makes the story relevant to them.

What a great book! I do not own this book, but after reading about it I think I want to buy it for my kindergarten class. This book can be a great teaching tool for so many reasons. It teachers colors, rules and it has a predicable text so that the kids can read along. Thanks! I am excited to purchase this story.

Sounds like a great book. I will have to get it and use it in my education class. I can probably find a way to incorporate it into Child Development, too. I am using children's books more and more. The high school kids love being read to!

Hi Stacie, I see that your father had a great influence on the choices that you made in life. I believe that our journey and path in life start from our very first role models and that is our parents.
