Favorite Children’s Books with Literature Activity Guides

Books read by a parent or other loving adult can capture a child’s imagination and teach him about the world.  Books become associated with warmth, caring, love, and comfort. Books transport the child to other places and times. Eventually the child learns to read on his own.

Benny and the Bear by Barbee Oliver Carleton. For some reason this book, though old and yellowed with
age (a Scholastic book from my own childhood) captured my second son’s imagination. In the book Benny was not very brave so he was not allowed to go with his older brothers to hunt and shoot the bear that had been seen in their woods. While they are gone, Benny tames what he thinks is a dog (he had never seen a bear) only to find out that it is indeed the bear! Benny then does something very courageous – he saves the bear from the men.

My son would walk around the house with a stick (or anything that could pose as a gun) and pretend that he was going to “woot that bear.” He loved that book and so did his siblings – after all, they had to listen to it often enough

We at 7 Sisters have had requests for elementary versions of our literature guides. We heard: INTRODUCING: Favorite children’s books with Literature Activity Guides!

Wayne Thorp, husband to 7 Sisters’ Allison, has written Elementary Literature Activity Guides to help you as you teach your child to read. They include a phonics component, story elements, vocabulary, comprehension questions, and a research component. As homeschooling father of 3 and a thirty-plus year veteran elementary school teacher, Wayne has chosen books that will delight your child.

Synopsis of You Are Special: In the Wemmick village, all the little wooden people give each other stars for approval or gray dots for disapproval. Punchinello gets no stars, only dots. This makes him feel bad until he meets Lucia; nothing sticks to her! She sends him to see the woodworker, Eli – he made all the Wemmicks. Eli has some pretty interesting things to say to Punchinello.
