T is for Truman’s Aunt Farm
This week brings us the book Truman’s Aunt Farm by Jama Kim Rattigan. This is a great story that is as much fun for the parent to read as it is for children to listen too. Truman has a crazy aunt who sends some unpredictable gifts. And this time boy do things get crazy. Truman is expecting an ant farm but what he gets is a delivery of aunts. With some creative thinking Truman cares for his Aunts and ends up finding them all new homes.
You can raise your ant farm and talk about the difference of caring for insects and people but you can also cover the basics that both would need. We had our ant farm when we read this story. Depending on the age of your child you can talk about homophones as well and the mistakes that can happen if you mix them up. This book is also another one of the Five in a Row book. Pinterest has some ideas. The author’s website has a list of ideas to go along with the story. Delightful Learning has lots of pictures to show off their activities including a very interesting gel filed ant farm. Finally, The Home School Mom has some links for additional study.
