Our Mr. Popper's Penguins Book Box

For our unit study of Mr. Popper's Penguins I went to the library and collected several books.  I put together a combination of resource books and fun stories and placed them in a plastic ice bucket that I bought from Wal-Mart for $2.00.  We call it our unit study book box.

  2. Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
  3. Waiting for Ice by Sandra Markle

We use our book box's for Reader's Corner (when my children pick a book each and read them to eachother), and I pick a few books from our book boxes to read to them each day.

In addition to this book box we also have a winter and holiday book box which we have pulled several snow science books out of and added to our study.

Thanks for stopping by Noah's Ark Homeschool Academy.  We hope to see you back soon!
