Exploring the World With Benny, week 3

The themes for the past two weeks were Japan and dragons. I chose dragons because I couldn't find a good selection of books for other Asian animals. Since dragons are also prevalent in Asian folklore and culture and since Benny loves dragons, it seemed like the perfect animal for the week. Here's our book list and craft.

  • The Boy Who Painted Dragons by Demi
  • The Crane Wife by Odds Bodkin
  • The Greatest of All : a Japanese Folktale by Eric A. Kimmel
  • Little Inchkin by Fiona French.
  • Jojofu by Michael P. Waite
  • Kenji and the Magic Geese by Ryerson Johnson
  • The Paper Dragonfly by Mary Watson.
  • The Silver Charm : a Folktale from Japan by Robert D. San Souci
  • Ten Oni Drummers by Matthew Gollub
  • Tree of Cranes by Allen Say

  • The Book of Beasts by E. Nesbit
  • The Deliverers of Their Country by Edith Nesbit
  • The Dragon of an Ordinary Family by Margaret Mahy
  • The Dragon Snatcher by M.P. Robertson.
  • The Egg by M.P. Robertson
  • The Great Dragon Rescue by M.P. Robertson.
