My friends—greetings on this most AUSPICIOUS occasion! Why do I say that, you may ask? Well, here in the town our Amazone Jungle reigns in, we are coming up to the Medina County Fair! Next week, and in the coming weeks in many towns just like ours, the fair culminates the end of summer, and the celebration of hard work, harvestime, getting together with family and friends. Now, when you get overheated after a day of walking outside, remember you can always get your HAND STAMP for re entry into the fair and come on down to the Amazone jungle to COOL off, play in our shady canopy, laser tag, and regroup!
And because we are talking about the fair, I have pulled some WONDERFUL book recommendations about this fun and crazy subject! So, check these out:
- 1. Dooby Dooby Moo by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin (Preschool – Elementary Grade Readers) What happens when the animals on the farm sneak a ride in the farmer’s truck to the county fair? The hilarious results will AMAZE and surprise you!
- 2. Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Beginning Elementary Grade Readers) a classic to be sure! It tells the story of Almanzo Wilder, future husband of Laura Ingalls Wilder, when he was an 8 year old boy on the farm in Upstate New York in the 1800’s. Chapter book that is an easy read –and chapters on how the county fair operated in his day, and one very ASTOUNDING thing he entered for a ribbon! If you loved the Little House on the Prairie Books, this is a MUST read! The chapter itself on the fair is also in a separate book for new readers called County Fair (My First Little House) by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Jody Wheeler
- 3. Fun at the County Fair (John Deere lift the flap book) (Kindergarten through Elementary Grade Readers) You see all the great trucks and movers at the fair—why not hear THEIR story! Your little ones will LOVE this one!
So enjoy these great reads, and let us know what you think! We at Amazone are always ready to hear from YOU!
