By The Light Of The Harvest Moon is another book with gorgeous illustrations that illuminate the page. The book takes place on a farm during harvest season with a fairy like theme.
And Finally... This is by far my MOST favorite instrumental CD of all times!! My mom gave me this CD during my first year of teaching school. My second grade class loved to listen to this beautifully orchestrated CD during SSR ( Silent Reading Time). I would always have this music playing with the classroom lights low right after my student returned from lunch. This music soothed my students and set the mood for an afternoon of reading.
Since we have been on the subjects of fall and Halloween, I am curious... how many of you celebrate Harvest Time? Do you let your children celebrate Halloween, or do you prefer to celebrate the Harvest/ fall season?
I grew up celebrating harvest and Halloween. I was always allowed to dress-up in costume and go Trick- Or- Treating. However, I was not allowed to dress as anything scary/ bloody or gross. When I taught second grade at a Christian school, the school's policy on Halloween was to allow the children to have "Story Book Character Day", each child was allowed to dress up as their favorite story book character. I think that is a fun idea!
