Happy Book Birthday, Barnacle
A few weeks ago I was gifted a copy of Barnacle is Bored. I had the opportunity to read it with my first graders yesterday. They thought it was very cool that Jonathan Fenske had signed the book and drawn a picture. They were equally excited by the personalized postcard Jonathan sent us.
Many of them had seen Barnacle is Bored in their classroom, but they were thrilled to read it again. Repeated readings are important to beginning readers, and my kids loved seeing Barnacle again. They noticed words and illustrations that they had missed the first time.
Happy Birthday, Barnacle. We hope it is a fabulous day.
