Summer is coming to an end, and we need just one more tropical fix before the warm weather is gone. Let's take a trip to the rain forest and spend some time with two adorable cockatoo birds!
Cockatoo, Too by Bethanie Deeney Murguia just came out this month from Little Bee Books, and it is adorable! The story is a play on the word "cockatoo" and tells a short and sweet story of tropical birds playing and dancing together. The story is funny, and the pictures are lively. Preschoolers and early elementary school kids will love this. My three year old will want to get up and dance right along with the birds!
Story Time Conversations:
For younger readers (preschoolers):
Let's pretend to be cockatoos in the jungle! Can you dance like the cockatoos? Can you jump like a cockatoo? Sing like a cockatoo?
There are so many beautiful colors in this story! Let's name every color we see on each page.
For older readers (elementary school kids):
This book is a play on words. Can you find all of the different two/toos in the book and tell me the different meaning of each one?
