James came over this week and wanted me to read a story to him. We had a lot of fun. I read The Three Little Pigs. Patty played the wolf and James was the three pigs. He did such a good job and enjoyed it so much. Then he wanted another story. He doesn’t talk but let me know he wanted to use the tigers so I read Little Black Sambo. Patty was the mother and father at first but when Sambo went out into the forest for his walk James made Patty take over Sambo so he could be the tigers. I forgot there were four tigers so we had to pretend we had all four. James loved the fight the tiger’s had. I thought that would be enough for any little boy but no he insisted we do the Three Little Kittens. He remembered that from the first time he came with Colby and Gina, so I read one more. Patty was the mother cat and James played all three little kittens. I think he liked the hanging the mittens up to dry the best. Then he was ready to go home with a big grin and happy. He still did not speak but he signed to me.
This week I finished the cats for Dyhanna. She is illustrating the story of The Rainbow Kitten and I promised to send her a cat for it. She also wanted a fur cat so I got that done also. Good thing I send both- I forgot she had a little sister who would want to have a cat too so Prem got the Rainbow cat and Dyhanna got the fur cat. The fur cat is tender and any rough play would split her open. Thank goodness Dyhanna is such a sweet child otherwise there would have been real trouble.
Dyhanna let Prem know that the Rainbow Cat was hers but also let Prem claim it for the day. It is not every little girl who would be so nice to her little sister. Now I have to make Rapunzel and the others in the story for Dyhanna and when they tell me Prem’s favorite story I’ll make those too and send them both at the same time. Next time I’ll remember!!
Here is my Kaola bear to add to the Swagman story. I still have about half a dozen more animals to do but I am getting there with this story.
I have put all the ones from the Swagman story into the corner with the swagman. You can see there are lots for toys to go with that book but it is a long book so it needs lots of toys. Here are a couple more I just added.
This is the dingo. They are the wild dogs.
This is the spirit dingo with red eyes that scared the boys so much. I have also finished The Adventures of Brer Rabbit.
Here is the tortoise for the race that Brer Rabbit lost.
This is Brer Wolf.
And this is Brer Bear. Now all the actors are ready.
Now when the kids come again I will ready one of Brer Rabbit’s Adventures to them.
This is my elephant. He will go with the book Giraffe’s Can’t Dance.
I have cut out the giraffe and some of the other animals. There are lots of animals for this book as all the African animals come to watch him dance. This is the online story I got. I just could not resist this story as Gina loves giraffes. Have a great day. I am late getting my dinner going.
