Todd Parr: Reading Under a Tree!

If you’ve been around here for the last couple of weeks, you’ll know that we have become LOVERS of Todd Parr (and even Todd Parr himself!), and we’re on a mission to read all of this books.  We’re at 10 so far, and one of the latest ones we shared together was The Feel Good Book.

Before I even start I have to say how much I love this cover.  Doesn’t it make you feel good before you even read it?  Makes me want to dance. 🙂

Ok, well…we read this one the other day, and kiddos were asked to think about this question:

We found out that for a lot of us, hugs  (especially from our siblings!) and our animals make us feel good!

Well…as we read the page that said: Reading under a tree makes you feel good, someone said, “I’ve never done that before.”  “WHAT?!” (I’m pretty sure I shouted).  “You’ve never read under a tree?!  We have to change that!”  So yep, we made a plan to make sure everyone knew what it was like to read under a tree. 🙂

Besides just being fun (and making us feel good, like his books remind us), this was the perfect fall-weather day to enjoy outside, and I was reminded of how wonderful our outdoor spaces are at Robinson.  And this isn’t even the end of it!  There are at least two or three other places I can think of that we can snuggle down with a good book!  Kids were already asking when we could do this again, and I was totally ok that everyone complained that we came in too soon. 🙂

THANK YOU TODD PARR, for making things like this so much fun and giving us great ideas for more ways to enjoy great books!
