Summary: Today at lunchtime, we had fun reading Mr. Wiggle’s Book. This little early reader by Paula M. Craig tells of a caterpillar whose book home is subjected to all manner of unkindness as the book’s “visitors” leave different types of marks in the book. My children were very concerned at first that someone had drawn in a book, but quickly caught on that it was not actually a drawing done by a reader, but marks made on purpose to teach children how to use books correctly. Even my 2-year old son was catching on quickly!
Pros: A fun and effective way to teach proper care of a book.
Cons: It could possibly teach children new ways to destroy books. (I don’t think my kids had ever considered glueing things into books!)
Age Range: 1-6
