When I first started hosting boys book clubs( over 5 years ago).. it was more of a story time. I encouraged the boys to try and bring a book they could share. One of the boys brought this book: Pete's a Pizza. It is a nice story- but what I like about it so much is years later.. we are still playing the game. In the story Pete is bored or sick.. it's raining... or something... and in attempt to cheer him up/ make him feel better/ get his mind off his woes... his father "turns" him into a pizza. ( Pretending to kneed and roll him out, add his favorite toppings and bake him on the couch.)
This morning.. my youngest was soooooooooooooo grumpy when I was trying to get him dressed. I remembered this story and starting making my own "pizza".. Lots of giggles, and laughs and fun.
I'm thinking this might be a theme for an upcoming story time.... and the kids could make English-Muffin pizzas as a snack/lunch.
Just wanted to share... and encourage you to join our book club round up- by posting books you and your boy enjoy!
