Our theme this week is Secret Agents! This afternoon, Special Agent E received this important message:
(Forgive me the hat... I didn't have a fedora.) E was thrilled to receive her own special assignment and spent over an hour running around the house and yard looking for objects beginning with each letter of the alphabet. I gave her an old iphone to take the pictures, which thrilled her even more. Halfway through, she asked to see our children's dictionary to help her come up with ideas for different letters. I was impressed with everything she was able to find! (A is for "animal," btw.)
When she'd finished her mission, she received two thumbs up from her handler! What more could a secret agent want? :)
Agent A To Agent Z by Andy Rash
It is not easy finding picture books about special agents, so I was excited to find this one. Agent A is given the mission: find the agent who's unofficial, the one not using words with his initial. He goes through the alphabet of agents, each doing secret-agent-y things starting with his particular letter. All of them pan out... all, except Agent A that is!
The illustrations are cartoony, using dark colors that I think would particularly appeal to little boys. While this is an ABC book, it's larger vocabulary is not geared toward toddlers, and I'd recommend it for older preschool and up.
