We are big Robert McCloskey fans around here. One Morning in Maine is one of Boo's all-time favorite stories, and who doesn't love Blueberries for Sal? We own this book and read it almost daily. So when the kids found out that we were going to row Lentil, they were very excited.

We learned about fractions with measuring cups and what else? lentils!

And we divided paper sandwiches

We listed to harmonica music, learned a bit about the other instruments in the story, and learned the words to "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" The kids then pretended to play instruments from the story while we sang.

Their favorite activity of the week was soap whittling. They both wanted to pretend to be grumpy Old Sneep, complete with cotton balls taped behind their ears to look like his "messy hair"

Buzz decided to make a raft and Boo cut hers into pieces and called it a soap puzzle.

We enjoyed our week with Lentil, up next is Madeline!
