    Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb "ust before going to bed, Timmy Bear and his mama play a game they call Tell Me the Day Backwards. Timmy tries to remember everything that happened to him that day in reverse, from watching the sunset on the hill to the picnic supper before that, from being chased by bees to finding honey in an old tree stump, all the way back to waking up that morning from his winter-long hibernation. "

    Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb; illustrated by David McPhail Mamma Bear asks Timmy to share a bedtime story of their day together, starting with brushing his teeth and going backwards through the day. Tell Me the Day Backwards demonstrates how asking children open-ended questions can prompt the use of words and language. Also, recounting what happens is one way to practice putting events in sequence, which is a comprehension skill. Silver Bells Award by CLEL Bells

    Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb -- great bedtime book; has a slow cadence that lulls children to sleep and offers a great opportunity for your child to expand on THEIR day backwards, building storytelling skills.
