And Then...

Ever notice how one thing can lead to another, and then another? Because Amelia Smiled by David Ezra Stein is a book that beautifully shows how when one young girl smiles, the impact is felt around the world. When Amelia smiled, someone thought of their grandson, and sent cookies to him in Mexico, and the cookies give him an idea which influenced someone else, and so on. Learning about the order of things is an important skill for young readers; it helps children with the concepts of beginning, middle, and end, which is important for reading comprehension. This is a fun way to show how it works! Guest post by Miss Charlette.
