March Book of the Month: Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo!

Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo!
By Rosetta Stone, Illustrated by Michael Frith

It is Theodore Seuss Geisel's, better known as Dr. Seuss, 112th birthday week and March is Dr. Seuss month!  In celebration of the late, great author we picked a book that is written by one of his aliases, Rosetta Stone. Many of us grew up with his books and it's so much fun to rediscover them with our children.  Learning to read with Dr. Seuss books should be a part of every childhood memory.  His ability to introduce creative stories and perfect early-reader text makes his books a favorite in classrooms and homes everywhere!

This is a silly tale about one little bug's sneeze, and the domino effect it creates.  His little sneeze, causes a seed to fall, the seed hits and upsets a worm, the worm kicks a tree and a coconut falls, etc... In the end, one little sneeze takes us all the way to a circus parade!

This story opens up the opportunity to discuss cause and effect with your kids.  Create your own silly story and see where it takes you.

Here is the animated book.  Perfect to share on a tablet or Smart-boards.  Enjoy!
