Audrey Wood, Quick as a Cricket

 Enjoy a slice of life, hosted by Stacey and Ruth at Two Writing Teachers

I have always loved the book Quick as a Cricket by Audrey Wood. I finally landed on Audrey Wood for an author study last week. We have continued to poor over her books through this week as well. Thanks Elsie and Robin who helped me decide this is who I should do, since I could not make up my mind! The kids are really enjoying her stories and of course her and Don Woods illustrations. This week we wrote our own version of Quick as a Cricket. The kids came up with some great ideas and made paintings to represent their portion of the book.
Here are some samples. Fun was had by all!

                                            Cute as a butterfly!

                                             Fast as a frog!

                                      Tough as a lion!

Love her and the illustrations, oh my! King Bidgood's in the Bathtub is a book that captured my husband's attention when our son was given this book as a baby. Now he insists I buy it for anyone we know expecting. Enjoy!
