Hello Science Friends,
There just is no denying it...this is the time of year that the children begin talking about the night. And soon the time will change and the long summer days will seem like a distant memory. But with the change of any season we all look forward to what the coming season has to offer. Right now the children are talking about the sights and sounds of Halloween night. Those conversations had me inspired to look for new books. I came across this book Moonlight by Cynthia Rylant. I was drawn in by the cover and title of the book since they have been hot topics in my classroom this week. As soon as I opened the book I knew I had to have it. There is just something about a Cynthia Rylant book that just sings to me. All this chatter about the night made me think this would be a good time to gather a little inspiration and maybe encourage some observations and non fiction writing about the...night.
