This week we took on the letter E. We were explorers of the wild and got to read Green Eggs and Ham for the first time. It was a great week.
The Letter E Booklist
This week we learned about engines, eggs, elephants, exploring, and Eloise!
The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper-This classic is fun to read and has the best message-“I think I can!”
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss-Definitely a fun book to share with my daughter for the first time. She was very concerned that the main character was not trying the green eggs and ham! I love this story.
Elephant and Piggie | Elephants Cannot Dance! by Mo Willems-Elephant and Piggie are fun and cute characters. This cute story follows elephant as he learns to dance.
Eloise and the Very Secret Room by Kay Thompson-I like the character Eloise and when I was younger I thought it was very cool that she lived on the top floor of the plaza hotel. We tried Eloise at Christmastime, but it was too long, so this short story was much more manageable for my two year old!
Ellie by Mike Wu-This cute story is about Ellie the Elephant. She is trying to help out at the Zoo she lives in, but feels like she can’t help in the way the other animals are helping. When she finally finds her talent, the Zoo becomes bright and vibrant. I thought this was very cute!
Explorers of the Wild by Cale Atkinson-This is probably my favorite book of the week and the one we used for our activity. I love these two explorers and the illustrations are just beautiful.
An Egg is Quiet by Dianna Hutts Aston-This book is all about eggs, it is beautiful and informative. Definitely one we will be checking out through the years.
Elephant in the Dark by Mina Javaherbin-This is a beautiful retelling of the poem by Rumi. It has such a powerful message so it is great for parent and child alike!

The Letter E Activity
For this week we read explorers of the wild, which is a great book, and I told my daughter we were going to be explorers. We walked around our neighborhood picking up sticks, rocks, pinecones, and all kinds of leaves that are falling off the tree right now. It was so simple, but this intentional exploring was so fun. I loved when my daughter would tell me that she was an “xplorers.”
