Fiercely feline by Kelly Calhoun

Young children are natural problem solvers and always looking for answers, especially when it involves animals. Using the photos and text, readers rely on visual literacy skills, reading, and reasoning as they solve the animal mystery. Clearly written facts give readers a deeper understanding of how the animal lives. More in this fun series can be found in the nonfiction collection.

We tried a few different rhymes and songs. We sang "The Wheels on the Bus," but added noises for all the different pets on the bus (I think the Elephants on the Bus were my favorite). We also acted out this rhyme while making all the appropriate animal noises:

     Can you hop like a rabbit? Can you jump like a frog?

     Can you waddle like a duck? Can you wag like a dog?

     Can you fly like a bird? Can you swim like a fish?

     Can you sit back down and be still like this?
