Exploring the World with Benny, Week 5

This week's topics included the country of Israel and camels. Here's a look at what we read:


  • The Book of Jonah by Peter Spier
  • David and Goliath by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers
  • Exodus by Brian Wildsmith
  • Joseph by Brian Wildsmith
  • The Never-Ending Greenness by Neil Waldman
  • Noah's Ark by Peter Spier
  • Old Noah's Elephants : an Israeli Folktale by Warren Ludwig
  • The Happy Dromedary by Berniece Freschet
  • The Last Straw by Frederick H. Thury
  • Little Humpty by Margaret Wild
  • Small Camel Follows the Star by Rachel W.N. Brown
For a craft we modified the following paper camel craft. I enlarge the camel to about double the original size and cut out the pieces. Then I traced the shapes onto white card stock. The body and both legs, I turned over and trace a second time. Once all of the pieces were cut out, we assembled the camel with brads so Benny could move the head, legs, and tail.
