Poppin's Book Nook - The Great Outdoors

Poppin's Book Nook - The Great Outdoors

Welcome to the Great Outdoors Edition of Poppin's Book Nook! The Great Outdoors encompasses so many smaller topics that it was hard to go with just one book! We started with a great way to experience the great outdoors....Camping!!!  My little guy is in love with Curious George, so we read about his antics in Curious George Goes Camping. Like always his curiosity gets him in trouble, and this time with a skunk!

978351: Curious George Goes Camping Softcover

                                           Curious George Goes Camping Softcover

Then my oldest wanted to read Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping to me, so we did that too!

Of course you can't read about camping without setting up a tent somewhere!  We chose our backyard, and then when we heard it was going to rain moved it to the basement. Not before we got a chance to read this month's books in it though!

It really doesn't matter where it is, they love playing with it! Hopefully one of these days they will get to sleep outside in it!

We also read a book about nocturnal animals called Night Animals.  I chose this book partly because my kids are interested in animals and partly because of the inconsistencies in Curious George. I mean really some of the animals they show are nocturnal, and shouldn't be awake during the day. But I suppose you can't be too picky since George isn't really monkey anyhow.....ok....that probably only bothers me...

So after we learned a little more about who really is awake at night we went hunting for some animals. I had placed various stuffed animals around the yard, and the kids started by hunting for day time animals. 

Then we used little flash lights and hunted for night time animals! I really wanted to do this part at night, but the incoming rain made that a no go. They loved the flash lights, despite not being able to see the light well, and happily shined them on any nocturnal animals they found!

We also got up close and personal with this little tree frog that keeps sneaking into our cushion container on the porch! 

Overall they had a great time in the Great Outdoors, and they got to learn about some animals too!
