I started this storytime off by introducing Spots the Dalmatian. In addition to having black spots on his body, Spots also has 7 white spots on his ears. We counted them, then I told the kids that I knew of other books with spots. One even has a dog with a spot on his ear!
Dog’s Colorful Day, by Emma Dodd. (E COUNTING DODD). Counting, colors, dogs…need I say more about how great this book is for preschoolers?
Lots of Dots, by Craig Frazier (E BROWSING FRAZ). This is a fun book about seeing dots all around us. In each classroom, I asked the kids to look for dots.
Press Here by Harve Tullet (E BROWSING TULL). This book is FAN-TAS-TIC! The kids were amazed at how the dots changed as we read the book. This is a perfect read aloud!
