Move Over, Rover!
Move Over, Rover by Karen Beaumont is a great picture book about a dog expecting to get out of a storm by moving into his doghouse all alone. Little did he know he wouldn't be alone! As the the story unfolds, he is joined one by one by other animals. Then, the skunk comes and they all leave the doghouse finding the storm has gone away. Now Rover may enjoy the peacefulness of being alone in his home! As I was reading this book, I immediately thought of my kindergarten teachers and knew they would love the predictablity and rhythm of the language. They use Jan Brett's book The Mitten in their winter unit and were excited to see how well this book complimented that story. It's a fun book that young children will want to read over and over. So..Move Over and let's read!!
