Ten on the Sled by Kim Norman

What better way to celebrate the season than a new song book!! My kids loved listening and thinking about Ten on a Sled by Kim Norman as it reminded us all of Roll Over by Merle Peek.

As we read the winter version, the kids were noticing new animals: caribou, walruses, hare, seal and new words that alliterated with how the animals exited the sled: hare hopped off, bear bailed, and seal slipped off. It was fun and gave kids lots of opportunities to think about what was happening along with decisions the writer made using punctuation to create such a lively read.
