Our nightly routine in our house includes reading books before bed. Every night since we received The Disappearance of Dawn by Jude McCanse, this book is on the top of the pile. The whole family really enjoys the story and loves how it rhymes. Each page has beautiful illustrations on it and my 3.5 yr old daughter loves looking at the pictures.
It’s a great story about the dawn (Aurora) being stolen and it remaining night forever. Until Sol comes to free her and they make the dawn appear again for everyone to rejoice. The story flows so nicely with the rhyming, its a real page turner and so enjoyable to read again and again (and again)!
” I’ve always tried to teach my children and my students to love words and to understand their power. A good vocabulary allows one to “paint pictures with words,” like in poetry, to express what is in one’s heart and in one’s mind, to debate, counsel and persuade. One of the most wonderful things about reading is the development of a good vocabulary, and it is a good vocabulary that makes writing come alive. “
