We pulled out an old favorite as part of John’s reading homework last night. He has read a short story in a book that was a little on the advanced end of his reading spectrum, so then we went for just pure fun: Sandra Boynton’s Barnyard Dance!
It’s one of the first books he owned thanks to a Boynton box set I bought when I was expecting. After seven years it has some dings and smudges, but it’s still in amazingly good condition all things considered. The fiddle-playing cow has always been one of John’s favorites so it only made sense to me for him to be lunch for today:
The cow is drawn onto a peanut butter and jelly on wheat sandwich with Americolor edible markers. He also has his favorite veggie sticks, grapes, fruit snacks and his Omega 3 gummies. There are music picks in the grapes and fruit snacks just because they seemed to tie the cuteness factor in a bit more. After all, you can’t have a fiddle-playing cow without music, right?
