While we were at the library last week I stumbled upon the book “my heart is like a zoo” and thought it was perfect for using in a story + art activity.
Lucas loved this book for the bright colourful pictures, and rhyming text. And Dominic liked this book for its variety of animals and there were just over 300 hearts for him to count throughout the book! I liked this book because it was a great way for me to begin talking to Lucas about his feelings. The book covers a range of feelings covering happy and sad all the way to feeling crafty and peaceful.
Lucas chose the snappy as a crab… not because he is snappy or crabby : ) but because he loves our hermit and emerald crabs that we have in our fish tank.
Lucas started out with some glue and cornmeal for sand
and then with help from mama we cut and assembled the hearts to match the one in the book.
