Molly's Magic Pencil Book Club Ideas
The English teacher within could not help but notice the run-on sentence on page one as well as some missing commas throughout. Distracting for a thirty-something, but ignored by the target audience, three-year somethings. In addition due to editing, a picture of Grandpa looks as if he is missing part of his left arm, but I assured my toddler that Grandpa was completely intact.
For book club regardless of weather, definitely incorporate a flying carpet into the storytelling area. This may be a sheet, rug, or blanket. Allow the kiddos to take a ride with their minds as they listen to Molly's Magic Pencil. Snack may be the creation of a flying carpet using graham crackers, peanut butter or icing, and various colored sprinkles in order to create the carpet of his/her choice. To conclude "baby" book club, give each book club member a "magic pencil" and paper allowing the creative juices to flow and to review Molly's Magic Pencil.
