Conhecimento Comum



It takes a lot of work to prepare for the Passover holiday, and inevitably something goes wrong or gets forgotten, so it's Matzah Man to the rescue! In five chapters and an author's note (including an invitation to "design your own charoset"), this could practically sub in for a haggadah. It's also nicely international, and shows how people celebrate differently in different places; Matzah Man visits families in Jerusalem, San Diego, and Morocco (where they make charoset with dates, not apples and raisins. "Dates? I didn't bring any. How about a turnip?")… (mais)

This story is about Anansi the spider. At the start all the other animals think that Anansi is lazy because there is trash in his house and yard. He then goes to Hyena's house and sees Hyena has a magic stick that cleans for him. He takes the stick and uses it at his own house. In the end everything ends up okay, after Anansi accidentally causes a flood and Hyena fixes it. This is a very cool folktale and a very fun story. I think it would be a good read aloud, to help show off other cultures, for first or second grade age students.… (mais)

This definitely needs to be added to my school library. This was a fantastic Hanukkah tale.

Sweet, charming, satisfactory ending. Format is: "I took my {x: x in (frog, hen, pelican, python, giraffe, hyena, elephant)} to the library" but she/he caused chaos. Although the elephant was actual an ideal patron, only much too big! It ends happily with the animals staying home, where the elephant reads to them. The illustrations are nicely colorful.
