What My Kid is Reading Wednesday:
”I Stink" by Kate and Jim McMullan
So, true story, one of the kids’ best-loved attractions in the area happens to be a big park made out of a landfill (named, appropriately, Mount Trashmore). E also enjoys pointing out landfills in other cities around us so, in a way, receiving a copy of this library favorite from a family friend this week IS a way of connecting to the great outdoors—see what I did there?
"I Stink" is a tale of a trash truck and the dirty job it does on city streets. It’s written for the preschool set and includes a literal A-Z of trash items (from apple cores to zipped up zucchini). Kate and Jim McMullan are geniuses too because nearly every book they’ve written, from “I’m Fast" (aka "that train book") to "I’m Dirty" (aka "the one with the excavator") has been a hit with my boys. Now there is also a dinosaur book or two in their collection. Seriously, wicked smart these two. The books are bright, colorful, and noisy. They are EXACTLY the sort of books most of us LOVE to read to our little ones.
For those of you who home school, we once did an entire week on trash—including this book—so I’ll refer you back to my blog for some resources and fun ideas. It includes some good summer fun ideas (like upcycling and composting) and a “trash” snack recipe too.
