Book Box- Back to School

My Back to School Box of books includes books about family and friends.  We have always done those themes at the same time.

When I Was Little A four-year-old's Memoir of Her Youth by Jamie Lee Curtis
If you have four year olds this one is perfect.  It creates so much language and background information about your children.  We always did a self portrait after reading this one.

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! (Ala Notable Children's Books. Younger Readers (Awards))This is a funny rhyming book that you could easily use to teach children when it is appropriate to paint.
