This wonderfully adorable book is written by a mother-daughter team and translating from French text.
Our reading specialist Mrs. Anderson let me borrow it, and I read it to my students today.
This book is much deeper then it appears (kind of like The Giving Tree by, Shel Silverstein).
Here is what biggerbooks.com said about Watching ...
"Following the long journey of a cute, imaginary, morph-like creature and his playful friends as they travel across the countryside throughout an entire season, this delightful and touching story presents a number of questions for adults and children to consider, such as how we are affected by the passage of time. It is a story of depth and poignant details that subtly reveals the answers to its questions in a beautiful and understated way."
Get your hands on it if you can.
You and your children will love it ... and it's a great book to discuss many of life's topics.
P.S. This is the 200th post ... just thought I'd throw that out there.
