Here’s my second post about some folktales retold by Margaret Read MacDonald.

The Squeaky Door
retold by Margaret Read MacDonald,
pictures by Mary Newell DePalma


Teeny Weeny Bop
by Margaret Read MacDonald,
illustrated by Diane Greenseid

I isolated these two titles because they’re both a little simple and cute for the 3-6 year old students who love that repetition in books, perfect for a read aloud book at storytime… and I also think that the little ones will pick it up afterwards and start telling it themselves because of the illustrations, humor, and repetition within the text.
The Squeaky Door has a grandmother trying her best to get her grandson to go to sleep, she bring in all the animals with no success… hilarious. Goodreads Summary: “It’s time for bed! Granny tucks Little Boy in tight. She kisses him good night. She turns out the light. And he’s not scared! No, not him! But when Granny shuts that door… SQUEEEEAK! How can a granny keep that spooky, squeaky door from scaring her little boy awake at night?” Teeny Weeny Bop has a lady who discovers a special coin that she uses to buy some creatures she thinks will be terrific pets. Goodreads Summary: “Teeny Weeny Bop finds a gold coin and buys a pet pig. But while Teeny sleeps, the pig destroys the garden. Teeny needs a better pet, so she trades her pig for a cat, but it destroys the living room! What kind of pet can live with Teeny Weeny Bop?” Both of these books beg to be read aloud.
I found an interesting apple soda that I’m looking forward to trying sometime… shall see.If you enjoyed this post, please consider following my blog through email updates – (do so to the right of this blog post), my Facebook page, comment, or meet up with me on Twitter.  Newly adopted: Follow my blog with Bloglovin– love how this organizes me and all the blogs I love to follow are in one place.
