Pippi Longstocking

Our current read-aloud book in the Grade 2-3 class is Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. 

You may remember hearing or reading this book yourself as it was written in 1950!  It was also a TV series in the 70's and a cartoon later on.  Some Youtube Clips are here and here and the original trailer is here. 

One of the first activities the students completed was to listen to the author's description of Pippi and use the watercolour crayons to draw her. 

Reading the book together gives us an opportunity to talk about the characters, the plot and new or unfamiliar words.  I encourage you to choose a read along to do with your child at home.  There are more books in the Pippi series or maybe your child would enjoy Harry Potter or Little House on the Prairie.  Find a book you remember as a child and share the enjoyment!
