It's National Picture Book Month! Let's find the perfect picture books for dramatic play and exploring animal characteristics.
November is National Picture Book Month. Picture books are central to our Belle's Book Club Residencies and Belle's Book Club Playgroups. Good picture books are the perfect companion for dramatic play.
Children learn about various animals and their environments in our Belle's Book sessions. We use our actor's tools: body, voice, and imagination as we explore and dramatize different characteristics of the animals. We use our bodies to walk like penguins, stretch like giraffes, and slither like snakes. We use our voices to sing, roar, and hiss.
Great books + Dramatic Play = A Fun and Meaningful Learning Experience
Take a look at some of these perfect picture books that can be used to explore animal characteristics during dramatic play.
