DAY 3 OF THE VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR AT THE NATIONAL WRITING FOR CHILDREN CENTER

       This month, I’m hosting Day 3 of the Virtual Book Tours for all
       the children’s book authors/illustrators who are part of the
       October Showcase at the National Writing for Children Center.
       Today, I’m pleased to be hosting Day 3 of the tour for author
       Mieke Bloomestein. 


     The Tale of Miss Spider is a wonderful teaching tool for teachers in
       the classroom. It will inspire and help Children listen to their own
       soft, loving, and kind inner voices. Children can draw pictures
       about their soft, kind, and loving voice, and about their angry and
       loud voice. They can put these emotions on paper. By doing this
       they will acknowledge the difference between these two voices.
       The teachers can read Miss Spider, and then the Children can act
       the story out as a play.
      

       This way, they can really feel the difference between the two
       voices, because acting the story out will bring the Children into
       the reality of the two voices. They will also be able to feel how
       different the voices are. They can discuss the story, and talk about
       the loud and angry voice.
      
       How can we hurt others and ourselves when we acknowledge the
       loud and angry voice. Then they can talk about the soft and kind
       loving voice, how we can make ourselves, and others happy when
       we listen to this kind and loving voice. The teachers can ask the
       Children to write a story about a loving and kind voice, and a
       story about a loud and angry voice.

  1. We love this book! My 3 year old loves the illustrations, and I love the idea of teaching her about the kind and angry voice.

  2. Hi Marlene,

    I love the book myself. I just got a copy and have been reading it to my 3 year old nephew. He just absolutely loves it too.

    Thanks so stopping by. Please visit again.
