Booking Across the USA!

I am participating in the Booking Across the USA project.

http://growingbookbybook.com/sample-page/

It is a collaborative blogging project which has been put together by Jodi over at Growing Book by Book.


Over 50 educational bloggers have each selected a picture book that represents their state.  Each blogger than created an activity or project to compliment their book.

I chose the story, The Brass Ring, by Nancy Tafuri.  It is a beautifully written and illustrated story about how a young girl is now old enough to ride The Flying Horse Carousel, which is located in Rhode Island.




Included in the pack is:
     ~ a kid-friendly informational story about The Flying Horse Carousel
     ~ a classroom book to create titled, "The Best Part About Vacations"
     ~ a classroom book to create titled, "I Like Being Big!"

  8. I live in RI, but haven't read this book. I'll have to get it to share with my little guy. Our favorite places in RI are various parks and (of course!) the ocean.
