Stories for Snuggling: Easter Book

Muncha Muncha Muncha

Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candace Fleming

This is such a cute book!! I actually have it on tape, and the guy who reads it has such a great voice. But, even without the tape, this book is so fun! Mr. McGreely has dreamed of having a garden, and finally plants one, only to have three night-time visitors. “Tippy-tippy-tippy pat! Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!” The next morning, Mr. McGreely finds his sprouts gnawed, and he is not happy! So he builds a wire fence. That night again, “Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!” So he builds a tall wooden wall… You get the idea! Who will win?! Mr. McGreely or the rabbits?!

I love this book for many reasons. First of all, it’s just plain fun! Kids love the humorous storyline and the pictures. If they’re observant, they’ll notice the rabbits watching Mr. McGreely each day as he builds a new structure to keep them out. There is a lot of repetition, which is a great reading skill, and saying, “Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!” is so fun! This is also a great book for predicting. I hope you enjoy it as much as the children in my life have!
