Hey y’all! Jess here with a new P-TM post. Ok, so I know it’s the middle of August, and the official beginning of fall is still about a month away, but here lately in my neck of the woods, we’ve had lots of cool weather. It has felt so much like fall, my favorite season! I’ve had to restrain myself from pulling out all my pumpkins and scarecrows and fall scented candles. Not too much longer, though! The book I’m sharing with you is considered a fall book, but my boys, especially my 3-year-old, love to read it year-round. It’s..
This is a fun book about a little old woman who encounters some spooky objects on her walk home one evening. I think my 3-year-old loves it so much because of the repetitive phrases used throughout the story. I’ll randomly hear him walking around the house, chanting the words from the book. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t read it, but once you read it, you’ll probably know what I’m taking about. It’s a fun read, and a good one just in time for fall!
I don’t have a particular craft to share, but I know when I googled it, there were several cute ideas that popped up, like some sequencing activities and using a flannel board and felt pieces to retell the story. You could also use this time as an opportunity to talk about anything your child fears, and how with the Lord on our side, we should never be afraid. When our sons are frightened, we always take a moment to pray with them and encourage them to take their fears to the Lord. Our 5-year-old will do this all on his own when he’s nervous or frightened about something. It is inspiring to see one so young go to God for help!
And, check out Pinterest too! Always good ideas there!
Happy reading! And happy almost fall, y’all! 🙂
