Yikes - it's Sunday!  I'm a day late for everything this weekend.

Any way, it's time for Paula's Storybook link-up at:

Here are two terrific books that I read to my class, and the kids really enjoyed both of them.

The first book is Penguin's Hidden Talent by Alex Latimer.  This is the heart-warming story of a penguin who is convinced that he has no talent.  His friends take his problem into their own hands by throwing a dud of a party for Penguin.  That's when the light bulb goes off:  Penguin is a talented party planner.

 
Consequently, Penguin plans his own party which is a total success:

 
The illustrations are bright and colorful.  Plus the kids loved all the fun "extras" Penguin had at his party.
 

This second book, The Long, Long Line by Tomoko Ohmura, shows this very long line of animals waiting to get on a ride.  At the end, we learn that the ride is actually a roller coaster ride on the back of a whale!
 


Learning to wait in line patiently is a skill most kids need to work on - especially at this time of year.

Yesterday I went to TJ Maxx to pick up a few items, and the line was long with everyone buying gifts.
