stART - What happens in November?

This week for our story + art project we read "In November by Cynthia Rylant"

Now, I usually set out a selection of books for the kids to choose from when we do a stART project. But this week I really wanted to do this book. So mom got to choose. It's a sweet story about what happens in November. From the animals burrowing down to families getting together to share a special meal. What really drew me to this book though was the beautiful illustration of Jill Kastner. The pictures were so lovely and inspiring that we each made a painting of our own about the wonderful month of November.

And in other, slightly off topic news. I have my camera back!! The body of the camera ended up being fine, it was only the lens that was broken.  Still not the cheapest thing to need replacing but better than a whole new camera. So I'm thankful for that.

Until next time.....
