Little People Lift-the-Flap Cars, Trucks, Planes and Trains and Magic Tree House Tonight on the Titanic: Sorting Land, Air and Water Transportation ~ Poppins Book Nook

This month the theme for the Poppins Book Nook  was Planes, Trains and Automobiles.  We enjoyed reading the Fisher-Price Little People Lift-the-Flap Cars, Trucks, Planes and Trains.  Emily read the book to Juliette and they both have fun looking under the flaps to see different pictures.  Since this was an easy book for Emily to read she also read Magic Tree House: Tonight on the Titanic.  She is currently working her way through the Magic Tree House series and was so excited to be up to this book and it fit in perfectly with our Transportation theme this month!

For our project the girls sorted different types of Air, Land and Water transportation which we turned into a little art project to make it a little more fun.

This looks like a lot of fun, the clip art is perfect and I love that a ton of supplies are not required for this activity.

Thank you for helping to bring a spoonful of reading fun to the Poppins Book Nook this month!
