Storytime: Big Machines

Assalamu alaikum,

Today we read, Big Machines by Melanie Davis Jones

This story is about big machines that we often see on the side of roads, in ditches, fields or parked solemnly along the side of the road at night waiting for the next work day. The story has short sentences and it rhymes so Big Machines, although intended for children who are beginning to read independently, can be read to infants and toddlers. Infants and toddlers pick up on rhyme very easily and enjoy it so this little book fits right insha'Allah. The illustrations are done in clay. I like this type of illustrating as it is unique and eye-catching.
