    My Book Tie-Ins of the Week:
    We loved reading red sled by Lita Judge. There are very few words in this book. The pictures tell the tale of a red sled that is left outside each night by a young child.  Each night the sled is borrowed by a bear who likes to go on on evening sled rides.
    As the story unfolds, other creatures decide to join the bear in his sled rides until seven animals are sledding under the evening stars.
    Finally one moring the child notices bear footprints outside his house. The child decides to watch out his window to see if the bear returns.
    When bear does the boy joins bear and his friends on a the sled! ” Wheeeeee!” says the boy as he holds on to a moose antlers as the sled slides down the hill.
    What did we do?
    Craft- Sled Making
    I built the red sled using the directions I posted in my How to Make a Cardboard Sled post last year.
    JDaniel and I rolled out bubble wrap to create a path for the sled and loaded the sled with some of his lovelies.
    After a few trips up and down the bubble wrap, JDaniel decided that we need to add hill to the path and see what happened.
    Poor Teddy fell of the sled and didn’t even make it up the first hill.
