“Just Jot It January #30–Found Treasures” by Linda Martin Andersen
I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit. I can’t participate every day this month, but I will join in when I can. I decided to create a theme to write about: I chose “celebrate.”
Today, I celebrate found treasures.
Recently I found and subscribed to Farley’s Fridays, (Treasure #1) a blog post written from a dog’s point of view by Kristina Stanley. On Friday, Farley was wearing shoes. This inspired me to write about TGIF and dancing shoes.
Today, I found a blog post about a picture book where a dog wears shoes. Learn about Kevan Atteberry’s Doggone Love here: http://picturebookbuilders.com/2016/01/doggone-love/ If you’re not familiar with this blog, I highly recommend it. And Picture Book Builder’s blog post inspired the post you’re reading. (Treasure #2)
I also recently wrote about the “magic of threes.” https://lindamartinandersen.wordpress.com/2016/01/25/just-jot-it-january-25-prestidigitation/
I wonder if I’ll find a third sharing of a dog wearing shoes? Maybe you could help me.
I discovered another treasure in my inbox today–(Treasure #3) a blog post by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater. It’s contains a poem titled “Someone Else’s Shoes.” Although it’s not about a dog wearing shoes, I think you’ll enjoy it.
Reading this post, led to another suggested book read: Edwards Eyes for ages 8-12 by Patricia MacLachlan.
- When have you or someone you know dressed a pet? Were shoes added?
- When have you worn someone else’s shoes? Where did you wear them? Tell about it.
- Have you ever played dress up in your mom or dad’s shoes? Did anyone play with you?
