Hilariously, a five year old is confused by convincing 'evidence' that his body is disassembling, like a cheap doll.
The pop-eyed characters of Parts completely complement the crazy fear the main character experiences. More importantly, Arnold shows children how true facts can be misconstrued. Laugh with your children. Then, see if you can find real world examples to show older children that the logic error in Parts is horrifically common, even among information specialists such as journalists & academics.
Count all ten things the caterpillar eats until it cocoons, and becomes a ...butterfly!!
This is a counting picture board book for the very young that is both instructive and fun. The caterpillar eats through one apple, two pears, ...five oranges, until ten foods most children will like have been chomped. The Hungry Caterpillar, finally, gets a stomach ache that is eased by eating a green leaf, but now the caterpillar is very fat. It makes a cocoon, and transforms into a butterfly, Yaay!! My six year old still enjoys it.
We see Jenny learn to raise a kitten according to its natural requirements and. thereby, to enjoy its character.
This is a photographic 'biography' of Pickle, a ginger kitten and her youthful owner, Jenny. The Little Kitten introduces children to the nature of animals. Its images show how cute kittens can be, rousing a child's appreciation of living things. Young children love it, but expect your child to want a kitten! Be sure you show him/her the slightly more informative The Little Puppy.
