When my daughter woke up from one of her naps this week I told her we were going to learn about the letter G. She ran into her playroom and saw the notecard for the week on the board and ran back into the room I was in and said “G is for Grapes.” I am so happy taking this time to learn with her has been such a good experience for us and that she actually learning some new things!
The Letter G Booklist
This week we learned about Gorillas, and Grandpas, the color Green, Gardens, Gloria, Gossie and Mother Goose.
Gossie by Olivier Dunrea- This cute book is just one of a large collection of books. Many of them have characters that start with the letter G-like Gossie, Gertie, and Gus. We checked out a couple and they were very cute.
Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann-This is a classic so we had to get it for this week while we were learning about the letter G. I love it!
Grandpa Green by Lane Smith-This book was also a double G, so it was perfect for this week. I love this sweet story told from the perspective of a little boy, and his words about his grandpa. It is a beautiful story.
Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker-I love the illustrations in this book and a love the cute rhymes.
Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann-I love this classic and my daughter thought Gloria was so funny in each picture.
The Curious Garden by Peter Brown-I love this book about a boy who finds some small plants in the midst of a gray city and comes to care for those plants until they grow and spread.
Mother Goose– I loved sharing a few mother goose rhymes with my daughter and then letting her color a mother goose page for our activity.

The Letter G Activities
This week we decided to keep it pretty simple. We found a cute mother goose coloring page online and I read some mother goose rhymes and then let her color. It was easy but whenever she saw the coloring page after I hung it up she would say “Mother Goose, Mother Goose!”
