April Family Book Discussion

In appreciation of April Poetry month, we all read poetry and talked about what we liked. I also gave special prizes to those who recited poems from memory or wrote their own poetry to share. Everyone had a blast, and we heard some really good poems!

Here are the books that were discussed:

Its Raining Pigs and Noodles by Jack Prelutsky
Read-aloud poems for young people edited by Gloria Hale
Falling Up by Shel Silverstein
Read-aloud Poems for Young Audiences
Who’s Coming to Visit? (Board Book)
Paul Revere’s Ride
Doodle Dandies by J. Patrick Lewis
Random House Book of Poetry for Children
Children’s Garden of Verses
Monster Goose by Judy Sierra
Birthday ABC by Eric Metaxas

I’m ashamed that its taken me so long to post this list from last month’s book group… however now I can let you know that on Thursday we have our May Family Book Discussion group!
This month’s topic is jokes and riddles!
A couple of definitions:

2. A mischievous trick; a prank.
3. An amusing or ludicrous incident or situation.
4. Informal

—–b. An object of amusement or laughter; a laughingstock: His loud tie was the joke of the office.

RIDDLE
1. a question or statement so framed as to exercise one’s ingenuity in answering it or discovering its meaning; conundrum.
2. a puzzling question, problem, or matter.
3. a puzzling thing or person.
