Great read aloud book for storytime.
Can You Make a Scary Face? - What kind of a face would you make if a tickly green bug were sitting on your nose? Or if it were—eek!—inside your shirt? Could you make a scary face to frighten it away? Or, even better, stand up and do the chicken dance? Yes? Then better get to it! This exuberant, interactive picture book starring a bossy little ladybug and a GIANT hungry frog will have kids leaping up and down and out of their seats to dance and make silly scary faces of their own.
Children's books that encourage movement. A great way to get kids moving during the cold weather.

Is Earth the final frontier?
