Daniel Pinkwater is a quirky writer whose imagination is boundless. He is a prolific writer of children's books and one of my favorite authors. This week the children heard three books by Mr. Pinkwater about space.
The children seem to really enjoy the stories. They thought it was hilarious that aliens collected potato pancakes and drank root beer floats. They loved that the parents never believed the children when they stated they had been in space. The more the books we read, the more commonalities the children found in the stories.
We are starting to think about writing our own stories about space.
