B and I are continuing our discovery of Jan Thomas books and we love them so much I just had to blog about them, incase they are new to you too. A Birthday for Cow! is the return of the characters Pig and Mouse who are preparing for Cow's birthday. Duck wants to add turnips to the cake with much objection from his friends. The decisions Jan Thomas made with the print makes this book so enjoyable. The bold print and use of punctuation marks has B and I reading with such inflection we both just giggle through the whole text. The use of speech bubbles is also key in connecting the characters with their responses as the story goes along. Today we are going to pick up a turnip at the grocery to see if we agree with Duck.
