Book: Terrible Storm

On our usual weekly library run, Little BBQ picked out the book, Terrible Storm by Carol Otis Hurst.  The book is about the blizzard of March 1888 that left the north east covered in a thick layer of snow for 3 days.  The book is about two men with opposite personalities and that ended up waiting out the snow storm in opposite but unpleasant ways.  For a preschooler, the book this really brings into the light the idea of opposites.   With Little BBQ I asked if he would rather be in a room full of people or a room full of animals, and he responded a room full of animals, so for our art project corresponding to the book he drew a picture of himself in a room full of people, the opposite of what he would have wanted.  To make the snow, he took the eraser end of a pencil and dipped into white paint.
