Last week at our summer camp,the theme for the week was; I Love Animals. The teacher that was running the camp was wonderful and I thank her very much. All of her crafts centered around certain books. This is a great way to create lessons. Books are wonderful inspirations for many things.
The one day I was there they were making a frog out of a paper plate. I honestly can't remember the book she based the craft on, although I have a good frog book at home that my youngest likes. The book is The Big Wide-Mouthed Frog, by Ana Martín Larrañaga. It's about a frog that travels to discover new animals and what they eat. His last encounter is with a crocodile that likes to eat big wide-mouthed frogs. It's cute.
