This activity was followed by hearing a few stories about sailing following stars.
Here is one of them:
Jump on board with the Butcher, the Baker, and the Candlestick Maker, as they sail away, at their wives' request, to snag a big catch for dinner.
This favorite childhood nursery rhyme, full of rich watercolor illustrations, has been transformed into a fun-filled adventure as our three heroes find themselves in a mess way over their heads!
How will they ever get home—and what about dinner? A great read-aloud book that will thrill the whole family.
Want to find out WELL you will just have to go out and take a look at the book!
