Storytime: Castles, Caves and Honeycombs

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Since Rub-a-Dub-Sub, Starry Safari, and Babies on the Go were enjoyed so much, I took a look at other books written by Linda Ashman. While all where not Islamically appropriate, I did find another book, Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs that has the same wonderful and delightful way of drawing the listener into the story, and like the other aforementioned books, Castles, Caves and Honeycombs is simply fun for children to listen to. The easy rhyme captures the ear while the illustrations help children make connections between the words and their meanings.

In this book, children learn that a home comes in many different shapes and sizes for different creatures. They also see that although the size, shape, colour and texture of the homes may be different, a commonality between them is their purpose: they provide a safe place to sleep, snuggle up together, play and simply be a family (among other things).

I think that this book may be our Together We Read choice for the month of February insha'Allaah but as of yet....undecided.

Have a peek inside of the book insha'Allaah:
