- Tammi Salzano has created the cutest book for learning and working with colors called One Rainy Day. Little Duck has a wonderful time with his red boots and orange umbrella playing in the silver shimmering raindrops. He encounters a green frog, blue puddles, pink worms, black bugs, brown mud, white boats, and yellow flowers while out enjoying the rain. Thank goodness his mom has a purple towel waiting for him at home.He is probably really wet.
- The pictures in the wonderful board book are soft and fuzzy. The creatures are smiling and happy. While this book is probably for children younger than three, JDaniel was delighted to read this book with me over and over again.
What did we do?
Color Matching One
We took left over lick and stick color stripes from a Sunday school lesson I taught a few months ago and cut them into small squares that would fit on the bottom of little rubber ducks.
JDaniel helped me lick the squares and place them on the ducks. Two ducks each received the same color. Then we tried to find the ducks with the matching color.
Color Matching Two
I took out an old egg carton and put different colors in the bottom of each egg cup. JDaniel then tried to match the color on each duck’s bottom to the color in each egg cup.
