Side A

Let's Go Nuts Book Cover
Before the Story

What do you see on the cover?  The book is called, "Let's Go Nuts!"  Have you ever heard anybody say that?  What do you think it means?  There's a second part of the titles, "Seeds We Eat."  What seeds do you eat? There's something else reallly special about this book--I'm not going to read it like I read other stories.  I'm going to chant the words like a cheer!

During the Story?

As you read,  see if the children can repeat some of the rhymes with your same enthusiams:  Love a legume?  Lentils--!  Chickpeas, split peas.  Fill your tum!  Encourage children to point when they see familiar food.  Read the sentence "Greet your grains" and ask the children, "How do you greet someone?"  Turn and greet your neighbor.

After the Story

Mmmmmm.  Who's hungry after looking at all this food?  Let's plan a tasting party.  Invite families to participate by bringing nuts, seeds, and spices that they eat at home.
