We Heart Ed Emberley

We happened to get a few Ed Emberley books from the library, and we are in love! The girls really enjoyed making the monster go away in Go Away, Big Green Monster. C loves Glad Monster, Sad Monster so much that she wants to own this book. I think it is always fun for children to act out emotions. Both of these books inspire further exploration; I can definitely see us making monster puppets, acting out the Go Away, Big Green Monster story with a big puppet, and masks for different emotions, in the weeks to come!

We also checked out one of Emberley’s drawing books, Ed Emberley’s Complete Funprint Drawing Book. I knew this would be a hit with M! She was so excited to start making the fingerprint characters, and also wants to own this book. C had fun drawing with the fingerprints too; I helped her a lot, but she was able to do much on her own. I can’t wait until we can get Ed Emberley’s Picture Pie Book; it is currently unavailable from our library, but I know M will love making pictures from cut-out shapes too (she does this kind of craft all the time as it is).

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
